SGD111 Class Update

SGD111 students, this week we are wrapping-up all class-related assignments, quizzes, and readings. If you have not completed any of the work, now is the time to knock it out or pay the price come final grade time. If you don’t complete the presentations and labs, it will catch-up to you. Last week I met with each of you to review your individual grades and status. If you need a refresher, login to the online course in Blackboard and on the left menu, click on "Course Tools" then "My Grades." If you have any questions or needs, please contact me directly via phone or email. The final game project presentations and files are due next class (12/8/2008). I will see you tonight!

SGD111 assignment upload error

Students, I looked into the error messages that some of you were receiving when trying to submit files for you assignments. That error only occurs if you are using the new version of Firefox. So, for now, submit assignment files via MSIE if you experience the error. Adam

SGD111 update : after the 2nd class and your 1st gaming lab

Everyone, good job last night. Clearly, as is true with most all courses, we all have varying experience with gaming and development. Those of you who are new to it, stick with it and do the labs — I believe that you will catch-on quickly and I’ll help you to get there. To those of you who have experience or catch on more quickly, take the labs and expand on what you’ve done — enhance it beyond the basics. Be sure to get the books this week and start reading as you don’t want to fall behind. If the bookstore doesn’t have it, check Amazon (linked on the syllabus). I’ll have mod 2 content available by the end of the week and we’ll start working on it in-class next Monday. Adam

You’ll need to begin reading chapter 1 in both. Next week we’ll start working with Game Maker software and some other goodies. Hit me via email if you need anything. Adam
