Lab 8

Leave a comment

Objectives:
To learn how to download and edit video using Video Down-loader Pro, and Sony Vegas video editing software. 

Equipment list:
Computer with internet access along with the built-in video software Sony Vegas.

Notes and observations:
I am a digital media major, so this lab was a breeze.

Diagrams, flowcharts, and figures:
N/A

References:
We had a sheet with instructions to guide us through the lab.

Questions:
Which of the other Creative Commons check boxes might you want to select to find appropriate licensed images for your video project?
Find content to use commercially &  Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon

Which of the Creative Commons licenses could you use in your class video project?
Attribution, attribution non-commercial-share alike, attribution-share-alike, and attribution- non-commercial.

Why?
All of those allow the video to be re-mixed, tweaked, and built upon.

Which license would not be acceptable to use in your video project?
|Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs

Why not?
Because you can’t change them in any way.

Conclusions:
This lab was very useful to those who were not familiar with downloading video, citing video work, and using Sony Vegas Pro.

Here is my ten references to utilize for my video project of Ada Lovelace:

(1) Book: (I have 6 books to look through) These books are coming from the Manhattan campus; they haven’t made it to my campus yet, so I am listing all six and I cannot properly cite them yet (do to lack of info on them).

Toole, B.A., “Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace, an analyst and metaphysician,” Annals of the History of Computing, IEEE , vol.18, no.3, pp.4,12, Fall 1996 doi: 10.1109/85.511939
Abstract: There may be controversy about when the computer revolution began, but to me a revolution begins with an idea, and that idea was Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine conceived in 1834. The computer revolution also began with a woman, Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace, who wrote an article in 1843 that not only gave us descriptive, analytical, contextual, and metaphysical information about the Analytical Engine but also the first program. Her prescient comments have stood the test of time. Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace (1815-1852), is regarded by some people as the first programmer and by others as a science fiction archetype, perhaps as “mad and bad” as her illustrious father, Lord Byron. At the very least, Ada is one of the most colorful characters in computer history.
Hooper, R. (2012). One minute with… Ada Lovelace. New Scientist, 216(2886), 29.
Abstract:  The article presents a fictional interview with computer scientist Ada Lovelace, author of the first computer algorithm, compiled from her  correspondence. She discusses the influence of her father, poet Lord George Byron, her work with mathematician Charles Babbage, and her predictions of the use of computers to process types of information.

Lab 7b

Objectives:
7 of us classmates were to construct a working network with subnets using the network equipment that is provided in the lab. The instructor was only an observer (we were on our own).    

Equipment list:
3 routers, 3 switches, 4 computers and plenty of media.

Notes and observations:
The longest time was spent on configuring the network and sub-nets; which we did on the whiteboard.

Diagrams, flowcharts, and figures:
We used a whiteboard to map-out a plan to organize and implement our proposed network. There was a lot of writing for making each sub-net, gateway, IP, subnet mask, and of course, the diagram of devices. See below for the picture of finished whiteboard. 

References:
We had a sheet copy of instructions on both what was needed from the instructor, and the commands necessary to configure everything. 

Questions:
There was no questions with this lab (just hard work).

Conclusions:
Getting to apply what I learned from the previous lab and actually do it  with real equipment was both fun and it also helped plant a much better picture of whats going on in my mind. Great lab!

Objectives:
To learn about sub-netting and how to assign different sub-network addresses to multiple networks.   

Equipment list:
N/A

Notes and observations:
There is a recognizing pattern that I started to see which helped me correctly fill out the lab report.

Diagrams, flowcharts, and figures:
N/A

References:
We were given a sheet with 12 computers on it ; switches,hubs,routers and they were in 4 groups.
We had to figure out all the data that went into the blank spaces.

Questions:
Refer to sheet (jpg. image)

Conclusions:
I learned a lot doing this lab, and feel confident for the second part of this lab involving really applying
these principles to the real thing.
