Today I designed the interface design for the task. I didn’t get to colour it in today but
I will that with in the next few days.
Saturday 25 April 2009
Today I finished the design for the interface and so I also got the chance to work on
more of the wiki’s due to rain.
Wednesday 29 April 2009
First day back at school. Today didn’t do a lot just discuss the task.
Thursday 30 April 2009
Today started to collect images that I might use in the task I think that my interface
design is too complex to do on the computer and so I will begin to design another
more simple design which I can do on the computer.
Tuesday 5 May 2009
Today I started to draw my interface and buttons in Photoshop.
Wednesday 6 May 2009
I have continued to design my interface in photo shop. Because I don’t like my
buttons that I created I will use the ones in flash.
Thursday 7 May 2009
Today I finished of my interface design in Photoshop and so I started my flash work. I
had lots of issues today as my computer crashed and then their was problems with the
buttons I used as their would have all the same name instead of their own. This was
eventually fixed by giving each one their own name in the library.

I have forgotten about the journal for a few days so here is an update. I have
continued my flash work and got to start the coding of some of the sections. Today I
will work more on part one by answering the first 2 dot points. Tomorrow I will
continue with the coding in flash.
Today I have learnt about how to add video to our media player. During next week if I
get the chance I will add another chosen video and rid of the one I added in today.
Today we learnt how to add music in to our player. I wanted to add in some of my
new Fall Out Boy music but it was in the incorrect format and so I chose another
song. I found it frustrating how bad the music sounded once put the sound in flash and
it took a while to improve the sound.

Today I am working on the written parts of the task many focusing on question one. I
have found the school computers to contain a range of hardware and software
available to use including adobe and windows programs. I wanted to get more
information about the schools system by due to not being able to access the control
panel any more I will use the specifications from my home computer so that I have
some simular information. I will also need to look up the specifications for the adobe
CS3 programs to get an idea of what type of computer I would need to purchase if I
was producing this with my own resources. It will also help to show the schools
Tuesday 19 May 2009
Today I will continue to research question one as explained from Monday.

Today during class I will finish my designs and the annotations on them. And if I get
the change I will go thought the making key and PowerPoint to ensure the written

sketches in class and written part online.
