Wk 9: Architecture & Urban Planning

Banner for Art110, Spring 2015

Thug Life Beats by Alexx Dunk. Alexx created her own music in GarageBand and then mashedup a lot of images she found online.

BTW, many of you noted that “you can’t upload video to WordPress.com unless you pay extra.” That’s technically true, but there’s really no reason to do that. You’d just upload to Vimeo or YouTube and Embed your video on your page (just like Alexx did). I like Vimeo better: it’s a lot cleaner, not filled with ads, and feels more pro. But YouTube is easy, fast, and crazy popular. Either one is great.

If you paste your Vimeo or YT URL on a blank line in our post, it’ll be an embedded video when you publish. If you have any trouble with it, when you’re in the EDIT window, try clicking int he upper right, to change from Visual mode to Text mode. Then paste your video URL on a new line. Then you can go back to Visual mode.


All points through Week 8 are now up on BeachBoard. The total points possible so far is 436. Here’s what you should have to be on pace for each grade level:

392 points = “A” pace – 88 peeps
348 points = “B” pace – 17 peeps
304 points = “C” pace – 7 peeps
260 points = “D” pace – 8 peep
259 & below = “F” pace – 11 peeps

If the grades were final today, then the Class Average would be a 3.23 – pretty good – but it can be better, right!?

Lots of you got full credit on everything. Some of you got more than full credit. And some got less. Ways some got less than full credit:

  1. Not posting activities.
  2. Too short, not analytic posts
  3. Poor post names
