1. Complete these three short evaluations:

2. Make sure to put all of your media — text, photos and videos — in the correct folders on the NewsNet server.

3. I will look at each of your videos individually — and after you’ve received the go-ahead, you can export.

4. While you are waiting for video approval, upload your text story and photos to the news website. Be sure to follow all the steps on the checklist.  Please double-check that you have completed all the steps.

5. Please tell me when your post is complete, then I will approve your video. (Do not export it before I approve it.)

6. If we have enough time and things go smoothly, we can watch each video as a class.

7. But regardless, please do not leave until I have signed off on your checklist.

8. After you have left, if your story needs tweaking or clarification, I will email you to fix, then publish once it is complete. If your story needs significant work, it will not be published and will be graded accordingly. I will put into your Dropbox a copy of your final project grades and any comments.
