TESTING AND ASSIGNMENT POLICY

Assignments are to be submitted on time. Failure to meet deadline will result in the loss of project marks at the rate of 20% per day late. Students may NOT share or submit the same files for assignments or project work. Two students submitting the same file with minor changes will result in zero for both parties sharing the file.
LECTURE NOTES AND LEARNING RESOURCES:

The professor’s lectures, notes and handouts will be posted online and/or on the school computer server for access to all students from the classroom. There is no formal textbook assigned for this class.
PROFESSOR HANDOUTS:

All handouts for this course will be delivered as PDF Documents and Quicktime video tutorials available online &/or on the school’s computer server.
LOST DATA:

Students must keep 2 copies (that’s right 2 copies) of their work backed up on Their own hard drives, CDs or DVDs (depending what studio we are in). Re-writable disks are highly recommended. Flash cards and ipods can be used as well. Failure to back up work may not be used as an excuse for late or missing assignments. It is not unusual for valuable work to be lost in industry by a client or a service bureau. Likewise the college IS Department sometimes “wipes” the lab hard drives without warning. You must be backed up at all times on the assumption that “what can be lost or damaged will be lost or damaged”.

* Note: A course outline is designed to give a student an idea of the concept and daily implementation of a particular course. It is, however, a living thing and sometimes changes to content need to be made to it in mid term for a variety of reasons. The teacher reserves the right to do this without prior consultation.
