|Tips for Success||· Plan your time – web projects are time consuming and technically involved. Plan at least five hours a week to spend in the computer lab or on your own computer. You will spend MORE time in the lab if you are not prepared to start on your project when you arrive – research, materials, sketches and site maps all need to be done before you arrive.
· Work with a friend—two heads are better than one when you run into technical, conceptual or creative roadblocks.
· Save and save again. Back up your work in MULTIPLE locations.
· Attend class – each week builds on the previous one. Missing class will severely impact your grade.
· Ask for help when you have trouble – don’t allow yourself to get behind on new material.

Digital Media is an academic subject. If you are using digital resources or images in your digital work you MUST cite the source (hyperlinks are acceptable in this medium). Stealing and taking credit for work that is not your own is dishonest and may also be ILLEGAL. Images, songs, text and video can only be used in their entirety if they are in the public domain. Parts of images, songs, text and video may be legal if an argument for “fair use” can be made. If you have specific concerns related to digital media please contact your instructor immediately.
