Michelle's Journals

February 26, 2010

  • This past week has been a really busy week for me, since I have had most of my midterms this week. I have been working on the website: fixing the history, layout, and adding curriculum to the page.
  • For the upcoming week, KTU is on Saturday. However, I have another meeting that is mandatory to attend so I may not be able to make it to KTU. After KTU, we'll repsond to feedback from the first lesson and program in general and adapt our curriculum to be more effective. I plan on editing my lessons.

  • This whole week I have been working on the CD designs with Sahil. We ended up getting a design to label the cd and two designs for cd holders (one if we get a jewel case and another if we just do sleeves). These CDs are to be distributed at Kid's Tech University next Saturday 2/27.
  • I have also been working on the MyVICE site. I have fixed all the layout details, reordered the menu, fixed the broken links and added to the publications.
  • This week I plan to finish the History section, using the outline Dr. Feng gave me, adding one lesson to the Curriculum page as a sample, and adding pictures to the Pictures page. The site needs to be perfect for the launch before KTU.

  • Due to the nasty weather conditions last Friday, we had our meeting via Skype at 5:30pm Friday.
  • I presented the site ( to the group and received some feedback for updates. First, change the "News Articles" page to Publications and add a "News" page for awards (like Gabriel's poster). Also, I need to add a "People" page to show whose on the research. We plan to use the site to post our material as well, so I'm creating a curriculum tab for that and we'll post our material when ready. There were also aethetic problems with the first creation (like the background bleeds into the text making it difficult to read) in which I plan to fix this week. I need to also add the links to SERViCE and fresca on the site.
  • I am also in charge of finding out if Kinko's will do the cd labels and jackets for us. I plan to call them on Wednesday or Thursday.
