Natalie G  from my course suggested this website to make letter tiles using different images from Flickr.  Here’s my attempt at it.

The final project

14 11 2009

I am working on my final project for ETEC540.  It’s about Graphic Novels and literacy.  So far I have a website, a lot of quotes and a pile of books I still want to read.  This is my weekend to write all the content.  The formatting will come later.

I am pleased to see many of my colleagues are visiting my blog since I posted the link on the class weblog.  I’ve received some lovely comments too.  Thanks for those.  It truly brings home the value of feedback.

I should have the link to my Graphic Novel site up later this week.

Progress report

1 11 2009

Well the website on typing is finally complete and submitted for marking.  Now on to the final project – Graphic novels.

So far I’ve got a few books on hold at the library.  A few students have done projects on this topic before, so I hope to have inspiration there too.  I am trying to make the final result look like a comic book.  I should be able to upload a comic life file but haven’t figured it out yet.

On the wiki front, I’ve added 3 pages to BMI3C.  We will start on Chap 4 next.  The students enjoyed Mr. Snippe’s talk and are looking forward to his return for the cd task evaluation.


Comic Life

This software will allow me to make graphic novel styles for my project. I plan to get the software from school. It’s part of OSAPAC. Files can be exported to html or jpg or so many other things. I wonder if I can have it available for Marketing class?

Good stuff!
