Video Diary

Video Diary: 3 videos, made in pairs.
Video #1: 45 to 90 seconds in length (1 %) Due: End of March
Video #2: 1 to 2 minutes in length (2%) Due: End of April
Video #3: 1:30 to 3:00 in length (4%) Due: May 25
Instructions: Videos should be interesting to you. Here are some suggestions:
Family, special hobbies, university life, club activities, best friend, boy-/girl- friend, interviewing friends, clothes, Korean culture, food, drink, favourite music/ band…
You should speak in each video but others can be involved.
You are welcome to rehearse and use notes in the video but you should not simply read your lines.
Be aware of the background noise and background activity before you start recording.
Do not sing unless you wrote the song.
If you use a Korean word, you should explain it – “I enjoy 검도. 검도 is a kind of sword fighting …”
Students should give their name and the date at the beginning and end of the recording. For example, “Hello Brian, this is __name__. Today is __date__ and I will talk about _topic_.”
Videos should be posted at a video hosting site, such as Youtube, Metacafe, Google Video, Screenr or other (Daum, Naver or cyworld are okay as well) and a link sent to your professor.
Grading your video journal. I want you to put real effort into these videos. I want clear communication (I do not need great English!) Prepare before you make the video and check for errors. Hand the video in on time and of the proper length and you will receive 100%
