ET620 Multimedia Design in the Classroom
This page is designed to point to some resources for students
taking ET620 with Dr.
Marcovitz in the Summer 2013 semester. Click on any of the
pointers below to find the information you need. While I will
try to maintain this site with up-to-date information, you must
attend class to get final versions of any assignments. If there
is a conflict between any information given in class and any
on this site, the information given in class should be considered
accurate. (If you have stumbled upon this site before the start
of the semester, you may use this as a guide for the kinds of
assignments that will be required for the class and the kinds
of topics that will be covered. However, everything is subject
to change before the semester starts.)
