*Important – ARTC251 CG-II – Remote Class Continuity Plan-Forward Motion ->
Dear ARTC 251 – CGII Students – Please read this entire post as it holds information that will be used from here until the end of our semester.
(There is a lot to read here, so please take your time. I will be reading through it with you during our next remote video class together, posting it to blackboard and also sharing the link here on our class website.)
First and foremost, How are you all doing? Please leave a comment below if you wish.
From here on in, please know that I am here for you in any way that you need me. Nothing is mandatory going forward with our class. Everything is flexible and we will all need to express what we need individually to continue on. Every student will do the best that they can with the means that they have to keep up with our class, however, this is all in context to keeping themselves and their loved ones safe first and foremost. Our health comes first. Physical, mental and emotional health always comes first. I am 100% available to help from e-mail, text and video chat meetings should you need extra help with anything. We will get through this time together.
*Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me – firstname.lastname@example.org – I am here to help you get what you need to complete our course to the best of your abilities. Let me know what you need. Adobe software? Wifi? Reach out.
I will conduct our class online during our normal class-time remotely via the video chat application ZOOM (zoom is FREE) – I will sync this with our class website. The class website, as you know, is the main place / space for all course content, assignments, student work, course information, lessons, videos, and resources. I will also cross post the information to blackboard as a back-up.
**Please download the Zoom App for your phone and or your laptop / desktop computers – You can join in from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device: (having a good wifi connection is advisable if possible but it also works over cellular data)

Fridays – 8:00am – 12:00pm – Bring your assignment work in progress, questions, references and suggestions to our remote video classes via zoom – this will cover demonstrations of software, and also present relevant content for the projects we are working on. You can share your screen and again, ask questions.
How will students submit their work: (past and present)
Students will submit work to me via e-mail, google drive, dropbox, wetransfer.com or any other method that makes it easy for them to submit the work. (Keep in mind, some files are large, if the files exceed 20 megabytes they will not reach me on the nyit server – in that case use free sources like google drive, dropbox or wetransfer.com.)
Projects / Assignments:
We will focus on another 2 projects (this includes the current project) and a final project that will display a sum total of the skill sets that we have and will continue to cover. I will also place an emphasis on a class collaboration with adobe photoshop and illustrator skills along with how to make a pdf. portfolio of the semesters completed work. Projects can always be found on the projects / assignments page on our class website.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions that you have. Im here to help – email@example.com
Be well and please stay safe.
