Final Help Sessions for Trek 01

Tomorrow we will have our final help sessions for Trek 01 (remember that Trek 01 is due this Sunday by 5 PM). Please check the revised schedule:

SonicStage Transfers: Steve Wetzel, MIT B-18
Uploading Files to PantherFile: David Witzling, B-68
Audacity Editing/Exporting: Alex Torinus and Julie Murray, B-56
Blogger: Glenn Bach B-65 (bring your laptops)
Drawing Maps: Lilly Czarnecki, B-68
Scanning Maps: Scott Foley, B-18

Please bring your laptop, external storage media, MD Recorder, recorded MiniDisc, MD power supply, and any other materials you need in order to ask us questions. The external storage media is absolutely critical if you plan to transfer files using SonicStage or edit using Audacity. If you plan to attend the Drawing Maps workshop, bring the following:

* Any and all notes and sketches pertaining to your trek (if you feel like some vital info might be missing--street names, major building names etc., you can look this info up online to piece together what you do have.)

* Paper (regular 8 1/2 by 11 paper is great)

* Pencils and erasers

* Coloring tools: markers, crayons, colored pencils, paints, ink, etc.; whatever you like. (PRISMACOLOR dual-tip design markers work really well and do not bleed. These are available at the UWM bookstore and sold individually.)

* Black fine-tip marker or pen

Check the Course Directory to find the URL for your Trek 01 blog. We will be using this URL to determine whether your blog is complete by the deadline.

If you've e-mailed me for a copy of AvidFreeDV, bring a blank CD-R to B-65. If I've already given you a copy, bring me a blank disc in trade.

Best of luck with your Treks, and we'll see you tomorrow.
