Mid-way Through the Semester
April 7th, and we're making great strides in transcribing the audio files from our interviews. As we finish up the transcriptions we also peer-edit them--checking for accuracy, thoroughness, and proper spelling of place names.
We're also in the process of creating content logs for our transcriptions—they are useful because they act as an index to our interview, highlighting important subjects discussed in the interview. This makes research and archiving in the future much easier, and makes the material more accessible and user-friendly.
This coming week we will begin planning and creating our short documentaries using iMovie to edit our video footage. We want each documentary to have a theme and tell a short story. For many students this will be their first time working with iMovie, however, we are confident in their capabilities and creativeness and are really looking forward to seeing what ideas they come up with!
