I have reviewed your weekly reports, your minutes, your web page, and your
Preliminary Report (PR).
Your web page looks nice (complete!) but you should have a separate Library
page where I can go to find all of the documents. See my previous
instructions and on-line examples. The idea is that the Library page will
change weekly, but your home page will remain relatively constant, expect
perhaps for a "what's new" link if you like.
Your Preliminary Report looks fine except for a few things.
The report is a little sparse, but I'll accept it. It could have also used
some diagrams that illustrate the relationships between user, the interface,
etc. A sketch of the user interface would be useful (to you) also. I
encourage you to try and sketch these things out. (We will talk about them
in class too.)
The biggest problem is that you need to re-think your plans/options to go
from simple to complex, not complex to simple (as you have). Setting out to
include all features it probably a recipe for failure. Because you are not
alone in this thinking, I'll discuss this more in class.
Regarding audio/video conversion tasks, I assume you will look for existing
tools to help you with this. There should be some somewhere.
I hope you guys are feeling OK w/ your progress.
