Other Course Information: • Online Video Tutorials: | Subscription included for SCAD students, and a direct link can be found on MySCAD > Resources > Academic Resource Network – Savannah > Lynda.com Training Project 1 Supplemental Information: Time Management is a skill that will be assessed throughout the quarter. Project 1 will therefore be graded during Week Five, in order to ensure that students are using their personal schedules throughout the first half of the quarter. Checkpoint Assignment Policy: Checkpoints are basic tasks, research and progress reviews made in preparation for each project. They are due on the announced date and evaluated as pass or fail. No late submission is possible for any checkpoint assignment. If the student is absent from the class, the checkpoint assignment must still be submitted (unless the student can provide a Note of some kind). Checkpoints are part of the overall grade for each project and will deduct 10% of said project's grade if the specifications are not met. Project Submission Deadline Policy: Projects must be presented on the specified date at the required time; late submissions will only be permitted if the student has arranged it with the Professor before the final due date – and – only in extreme circumstances that warrant a Note of some kind (e.g. doctor’s note, police report, etc). Otherwise, late submissions will not be tolerated, and will always receive an automatic grade of zero. Project Presentation Policy: On the day that a project is due, students are expected to address the class in a verbal report of their project. This presentation will explain the project’s concept, software techniques employed and measures taken to overcome challenges during the development stage. If the student is absent, and is thus unable to give their presentation, then the Professor reserves the right to give that student a zero for that project , regardless of whether or not they have turned it in (the only exceptions being – again – if the student has a Note of some kind explaining their absence). Extra Credit Opportunities: There are several extra credit opportunities for this class. The first is if a student attends a SCAD-related event (e.g. showing at Lucas Theater, lecture, activity, etc) they can then write a two-page paper (12pt font | Arial | Double-Spaced) outlining their experience and relating it to this class. This paper is worth an extra 5% added on to the student’s lowest project score at the end of the quarter. However, students can only submit one paper for extra credit. The second is if a student attends our field trip to Arnold Hall, and then uses the Laser and/or 3D Printers to print out something and brings it into class. This will also be worth an extra 5% added on to the student’s lowest project score at the end of the quarter. And again, students can only submit one printed object for extra credit.
