Evaluation Activity 4

How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Here is a collage of all the programs, websites and technical equipment used in the duration of this project:

1. Blogger- This was where I wrote all of my posts and coursework. This website allowed me to embed pictures and videos on my blog.

2. Wordle- This was where I created my word clouds. Wordle allows you to use different fonts and colour schemes to make your word clouds stand out.

3. Prezi- This animated presentation website allows a more interactive experienced to be had by the viewer. This is where I created my works on the transformation of a star and my evaluation.

4. Glogster- This was where I created my moodboard. Glogster allows you to add frames to your images.

5. Kwik Surveys- This website was used to create my survey for my research. It is very easy to use and also calculates the votes.

6. Photoshop- This software allowed me to create my ancillary tasks which included the album covers and the magazine advert. It allowed me to manipulate images and add really nice effects.

7. Google- This search engine was used to search for important information.

8. Youtube- This was used to research other music videos and also where my final video was uploaded.

9. Vimeo- This website was used to embed other music videos onto my blog.

10. Safari- This is how I accessed the Internet when using an Apple Mac.

11. Final Cut Express- This is the program I used to edit my music video and also the one I used at the beginning of the course for the editing practice.

12. Wikipedia- This website provided me with a lot of useful information on bands, artist and record companies

13. Sony Hd Camcorder- This allowed me to video the footage for the music video

14. Apple Mac- This was the operating system that I used when I was working on parts of the project at school

15. iTunes- This was used to play the track when we were filming in the Media Studies Pod

16. iPhoto- This was used to upload pictures of what happened behind-the-scenes when filming our music video

17. Music Video Blog- This was the main music video blog, which was used to access my own blog as well as everyone else's

18. Quicktime- This was used to export my music video and rough cut to allow it to be uploaded onto Blogger. It was also used to show my video to the class whenever we were in the Media Studies Pod

19. Scribd- This was used to show the schedule of the filming for the music video

Here is a Prezi showing all of the effects I used on Final Cut:
