Next week is our final week and the ePortfolio is due at the end of your class. Usually, in week 11 we go out on an excursion to an interactive exhibition somewhere in Sydney. We quite often visit the White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale and students write about their experience as part of the final reflection for assignment 3. Due to closures everywhere this semester we are asking you to go to the virtual exhibition this week, please click this link:
We would like you t visit all of the areas and reflect on the virtual experience in your ePortfolio.
Be sure to re-read the assignment 3 brief in detail, including the criteria matrix to ensure you have covered everything. **IMPORTANT** this is a reflective work, so in your writing there should be a maximum of 10% description 90% reflection.

eportfolio – Due at the end of class in week 12
Your task for this assignment is to explore the key concepts, processes and design considerations in multimedia by developing a web-based e-portfolio. The e-portfolio should tell a story about you and your world including reflection on your learning and understanding of topics examined in this subject.
The multimedia section of your e-portfolio should incorporate examples or samples of your work. It should also illustrate your understanding of the complexities of multimedia and its crossover into social media through analysis and reflection.
You should use a combination of written and visual texts supplemented with audio where appropriate, embedded into your e-portfolio.
What you should include as a minimum
This assessment addresses multimedia course work and your reflections will demonstrate the level of engagement with our concepts and content.
Reflections relating to your experience and understanding of:
Images and multimedia including an image analysis, the movie poster and animation assignment process
The week 11 excursion
Your understanding of multimedia in general, this forms an essential part of this project
You can showcase work completed as part of your Multimedia Subject in the Coursework section. The examples can be a sample of the work completed, not necessarily the whole of the work. Remember this is a showcase and therefore should exhibit the best of your work, knowledge, thinking, analysis and skills.
You should also keep a weekly journal which will include a screenshot of your tutorial work plus brief notes which demonstrate your understanding of techniques and process. This work is to be uploaded at the end of each tutorial.
You should also upload a jpeg version of the movie poster created for assignment 1 and a compressed version of your animation with audio attached from assignment 2.
*You may need to upload the animation to a private YouTube channel and embed this link in your ePortfolio.
Copy all text from your ePortfolio into a word document each week.
This word document will form part of your submission via Turnitin in week 12, ePortfolio links with no word document submission are incomplete and cannot be marked.
A reflective section that communicates your understanding of multimedia and what you have learnt in the subject. There should be a minimum of four reflections.
Starting with an image analysis in week 2, you will then reflect on each of your assignments and the excursion.
These reflections may be broad, you can discuss still and moving in general whilst making connections to course concepts or can be assignment specific.
You may choose to write further posts to illustrate your understanding of multimedia in general or any special interests you have.
Extra images, animation’s and video files can be uploaded to support your reflections and design processes in any format.
You may also consider including a review of a movie, anime or other multimedia. For example, you could incorporate a review of the use of multimedia in the discipline area you want to study at University.
You might include visuals and links to sites that inspire your work and creative thinking.
The look and feel of the site should also represent a little of your personality, identity and interests.
You may choose to incorporate additional image manipulation, e.g. creation of own images or background etc. demonstrating a more advanced set of skills.
