Due Dates

Module 3 is not going to be as firm on the due date. You can turn this in at any time before the end of the semester. If you would like extra credit for the class you can go to the SGD Events facebook page and enter into the Video Game Hero Video Contest. Go to Facebook. Search SGD Events (if you are not a member of the page, please send a request to be added). Then go to the Events tab and you will see the Contest. The requirements and Due Date are there.

Remote Server

It appears that the remote server is not allowing some students to log in. If this is you, please send me an email. You do not need to send one if you already have. This only started happening on Saturday. You should have been working to complete your assignments before Today when they are due. Currently, we are in our fall break at CPCC. ITS will most likely be unavailable to fix this issue until as late as Thursday. Because you have only missed two days of work due to this issue I will be extending the due date for Module 1 and 2 until Sunday, October 17th. No more extensions. There has been plenty of time to complete your assignments, one full day of work is not enough to miss doing your work on time. In order to receive this extension you will need to email me to let me know you are having trouble using the remote server. If I have not received an email by Tomorrow morning stating your inability to use the server, you will receive no extension. This is not to be harsh, it is only to make it clear that two months to do the first two modules has been more than enough time to complete these assignments, especially considering that 4 chapters of the book are not required and the introductory videos are barely more than watching him talk about After Effects. Thank you for your patience in resolving this issue and your understanding of the due dates.

Module 2

If you completed Module 1 this past week then you can move on to Module 2. Due to the fact that there have been Non-existant books and Technical Difficulties with After Effects Module 1's due date has been changed (check the calendar) to the same Due date as Module 2. October 10th. There will be no more extensions or wavers on book work. If you were one of the few who were able to complete Module 1 by the due date of September 11th, you will receive a 25% extra credit added to your Module 1 grade. This means, if you completed all 8 assignments and have met all requirements, you will receive a potential of 1000 points for Module 1 instead of 800.

Once again. There will be no more extensions or wavers except under extreme circumstances.

Remote Server


The remote server for accessing Adobe After Effects is up and running. Please follow the button labeled INSTRUCTIONS on the left side of the screen. It is very important that you follow these instructions EXACTLY. Failure to do so may result in your inability to use the software. ITS and myself are working hard to make the resources available on the remote server, but until then you will have to save all of your resources yourself before beginning work once you have logged in. Instructions for this are on the INSTRUCTIONS tab as well. Please watch ALL videos including the Additional Videos below the intitial setup instructions. Good Luck and email me if you have any questions.

Due to the lack of most students' ability to use the software the book work for Week 1 - 3 will be waved. (ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY) A lot of the content in these chapters is redundant to what you are doing in the Basic Training Videos. If you have already completed them, submit them at the end of the module with the rest of your files and you will receive extra credit.
