Hi All,

As negotiated in class, you have an extension for the submission of the final group project work.

The due date is now the same as the last individual assessment ... 10th of June (before 11:59pm).

This is reflected in the updated course outline: 

(note; you may have to refresh the page for this update to show)

We look forward to seeing your responses to the group presentations last week!

Grades for the first Major Milestone and Group Presentations

Hi All,

I've just emailed your grades and feedback sheets for the first Major Milestone and your Group presentations to your student email addresses.

One key aspect I'd like to reinforce is the need for evidence to back up any claims regarding work you have done ... your blog is the place to demonstrate your individual contributions to your groups project. If you've downloaded and installed something, show how you can use it in the project; a working example. A time lapse capture of a video tutorial is not evidence you've learned the techniques ... that's simply evidence you can play a video. Capturing your own modeling as you work is evidence that you've acquired useful skills.

Nicole and I look forward to seeing your outcomes on Wednesday; remember, be prepared to present at 9am.

Kind Regards

Hi Guys,

The link below is to a word document that contains my notes regarding modding UE4.


When you open it in word make sure you have the navigation panel showing on the left .. the styles for headings and subheadings will help you to find information quickly throughout the document.
