Term Project Plan...

The following dates are the deadlines that I would like to meet for working on my term project EL 200's spring class. Finally I have centered on the idea of adding more interactive elements to the Setonian's online edition.

Ideas that we spoke about in class were:

- Photo slideshows for the Setonian Online.
- Photo or video speak out on the Setonian Online.
- Standard audio and video recordings regarding speak out and polling questions.
- Cropped t-shirt photo contest to match with students and we can take submissions online.
- Guess the professor's baby photo.

Phase 1: 2/11/08 - 2/18/08
1. Individually assess the needs of the online edition of the student newspaper.
2. Contact Kayla Sawyer and Stormy Knight for their input on the needs of the online paper.
3. Find willing and able individuals with experience in coding html as well as Flash [mostly those who have taken New Media Projects or EL 200 with the emphasis on podcasting]. Specifically I think it would be a good idea to look for people that are not graduating so that the maintenance of these new media elements can be kept up on the site.

Phase 2: 2/25/08 - 3/10/08
1. Decide on the most important element that I want to add to the Setonian online.
2. Begin working on this interactive addition to the online paper.
3. Beta test this creation with students that are both on the paper, in EL 200 and general members of the student body.

Phase 3: 3/15/08 - 5/09/08
1. Implementation of new media on a blog to test capacity of the software.
2. Get feedback from Dr. Jerz on how we can improve my final product.
3. Final placement on the website for the summer edition of the paper or for the last edition.
