Mon/Glenn Section: Questions for Open Lab?

Please tell us in the comments below about any technical challenges you’re confronting with your multimedia project.

Remember that the bulk of tonight’s class time will be devoted to an open lab. While the instructor will review individual draft assignment with a focus on “story” (see specs below), we’ll also have TA Samantha Stark available throughout the session and a broadcast associate available from 530p-630p to field technical questions about the tools you’re using. Help us make best use of their time by sharing questions in advance.

Also: Samantha has been putting together resources to help guide you during newsgathering (link) and production (link to come later today)

And here’s the assignment for your draft project, as a reminder of what’s expected this evening. See you then!
