GAMSWEN hand in instructions.
On Tuesday 15 May by 4pm you have to hand in your GAMSWEN magazine/blog/newspaper/film/video/animation to the reception desk with the header sheet for this assignment .
If you are sending it away to be printed then you will need to hand in a receipt from where you are getting it printed, for instance Blurb, with the header sheet. If you are creating an online version, website/blog/issuu.com then you will need to hand in 3 screen shots and the URL with the header sheet. This will be the same for film/video/animation, which should be uploaded to YouTube/Vimeo or such like, and you will also hand in screen shots and the URL.
Also on Tuesday 15 May by 11 pm you will also have to upload a single PDF file to Moodle of your work, whether it is a printed version or digital/online.
Any work not handed in on time to both the reception desk and Moodle will be marked at 0% unless you have extenuating circumstances and have handed in the extenuating circumstances form BEFORE Tuesday 15 May 4pm.
You must have at least 12 sections, of a minimum of 300 words each, in this submission and one being an extended piece of writing of 1500 words. You may add work to it from your other courses, such as Nickie’s Magazine, Stacey’s book and/or the work you have done on Thursdays. The more you go beyond the brief the more likely to are to receive better grades. You may want to add your own work into the magazine/blog/film or create adverts for it too?
