Basics - Complete before the end of week 1.
1. Create a Wiki Page
a. Go to the Student pages section of the Improv Wiki and create a new page
b. Name the page with your name
c. Add a link to your page on the Student Pages home page.
2. Create a Sound Cloud account
Upload all audio files to this account and set them to “private.”
3. Create a YouTube or Vimeo account
Upload all video files to this account and set them to “unlisted.”
Some assignments will be completed during the tutorials and others will be completed outside of class and for some, both. For each assignment, you will be expected create a header that includes the name of the assignment and the date. Provide a link to the audio or video file. Then discuss the assignment and your performance. Explain what you did, what you were trying to do, what worked and what didn’t.
In improvisation, you should learn something every time you do it, even if you aren’t satisfied with the actual performance. Use your discussion to demonstrate your understanding.
Assessment is based on the performance (50%) and the process you used (50%). Your discussion of the process and reflection on the performance will be used as the basis for the process grade.
Describe what you were trying to do, what happened, what worked, what didn’t and what you might do differently next time. The more you demonstrate understanding of the process, the better your grade will be.
Exceptional videos or audios will receive better grades.
Exceptional layout and design of the wiki will also be reflected in better grades.
Make sure the audio or video quality is good. Do not post distorted audio or inaudible. Video must be oriented correctly. Trim videos so only the performance is heard.
A general rubric will be developed in class for use in self-evaluation. Please refer to it in class.
