I am doing Mixi’s mini diary with Olivia as my primary project. Actually, I found that it is very hard to accommodate our time for meeting regularly. Having tutorials is a really good way to hold a regular meeting after class. However, the frustrating thing is that we are not in same tutorials and didn’t meet each other this week face to face. We came up an idea that to hold the meeting online, using the chat tool ‘WECHAT’. Below is a week 1 journal which I wrote for recording the activities and progress of the project.
Week1 – Sunday meeting on we chat FaceTime:
24th July 2016****
1)assignment 1：Concept Brief & Pitch for a Media Project: presentation
A1 due 30th 7 intensive Saturday
revise the concept brief and make any additions or changes
*a document use to attract others to commit and work on the ideas.
2) confirm our schedule *class time *meeting time
—— things we need to do for next tutorial, 1, asking tutor about the concept changes and feedback, get some advice.
before intensive 1* ppt for presentation 约好哪天一起写，brief or Google doc？
content: concept, scale, platform, market/to whom, story, what we have done last semester, what we need to change, (develop story need more conflicts, looking for client?) milestone for whole semester & presenting next step and what audience will see in next stage.
the survey is gonna help us with story development (and avoiding bias) since both of us are media student rather than business student. *we both don’t know about that environment, question: what we gonna do? how can we know more about business student? from friends, from in-depth interview and survey or else?
