Snow and Contracts, Contracts and Snow!

Well goodness, snowpocalypse 2010 has certainly thrown the metro area for a loop huh? Regardless, contract were still due and our images group worked our little fingers to the bone in order to get it out on-time, or a few hours early. I have to say our group works very well together and we have a very open line of communication that we have been sharing with Dr. McClurken as well. Just a note to the other groups out there, part of the reason that we are able to have such tight communication is due to the Google.doc that we converse on daily…and I mean DAILY!!!

I did want to wait until we received our comments before writing this blog and I think that the comments were very insightful  and after reading them and then comparing them to the contract I realized that they were spot on. I have since gone back and made some corrections and raised some questions to the group to see how we can improve upon our mission.

I believe that this open forum between group and professor is really a productive way to achieve the goal that this course is reaching towards. By using these blogs and the google docs, we have a more accessible line of communication that is really cutting edge in the classroom.  When I was in highschool the teachers did not have a computer in the classroom…and this was in 99, which is really not that long ago, and now, we are able to communicate with our professors in live time. I think its pretty remarkable. Anyway, those are my “deep thoughts” for the week…maybe I have been locked in my house for too long!

    I’m glad our group communicates as well as we do! We do have some rethinking of our contract to do though, but I think once we go over Dr. McClurken’s questions and suggestions we’ll have a pretty solid foundation for our project.
