Thank you, thank you, thank you! To all of you who contributed, watched, liked, and subscribed to the LABventures project, I can now say that we couldn't have done it without you.
It all began as a class in 2014, and an idea long before that, but thanks to your support and in some cases contributions, we can now declare the experiment a success. We will of course keep all of the archives up for as long as we can at the main channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSTdxTbNri5NK9_8GU5qtMA so that those who wish to experience every second of the 70+ hours of the main server creation can do so.
Will there be more LABventures projects? Who knows! Only time will tell, but I can tell you one thing - if you really want more - make a point to get on there and watch, like, and subscribe to any and all of the archives!
So long (for now) LABventurers!
I have lost my voice and therefore we will not be having class tonight. Keep working on your D3 while I keep working to grade D2 (22 hours of video takes a while!) And in the meantime, consider leveraging the YOUTUBE STRATEGIES textbook for this course by registering with the author at http://www.21questionsaboutyoutube.com/. Watch his pitch on that site and then decide if it is worth your while. The videos are actually quite helpful!
Per a democratic classroom decision, the due date for presentations and uploads of project 2 has been kicked back to next week seeing as we lost a week from the weather and project 1.
See everyone there and ready to go! Remember - a summary video and/or additional content videos are bonus points!
"Non-Linear Story Models" Prezi for D3 is below. I will be showing you numerous and specific examples in class on Wk 12 so don't miss it!
This week our teams-teamed-up-to-gang-up on -- well, me. "Evil me" at least. Great job with the dungeon, The mods had fun creating it and I hope you had fun running it. I can't wait to see your viewpoints on your channels! Soon we will be posting our meta videos about the creation of the castle ruin dungeon, so look for that to link to on the main LABventures channel https://www.youtube.com/user/LABventures.
The fun is not done though! You can still find my unclaimed treasure in the nether, and since there is now a revealed stronghold waiting to be plundered - the End Dragon awaits you! (The treasure will help!)
When you are ready to exit adventure mode and craft again, be sure to hit the new button on the spawn hill-house rooftop before returning to your regularly scheduled shenanigans.
Remember to edit and post right away as we are creeping up on the D2 due date!
(WK 8 was spring break)
So those few who have not yet presented... send me a link to your best work - the one you would have shown for the second part of the showcase. Then EVERYONE RECORD RECORD RECORD! Oh and also UPLOAD UPLOAD UPLOAD! Have an ice day!
**Obviously our MC LABventures live event is postponed till after spring break but be ready when we get back! It promises to be unlike anything you have done before!
YogscastSjin is Sjin's YouTube channel. The channel was created in early 2012, however, Sjin didn't begin uploading more seriously for a while.
YogscastSjin initially served as a channel for Sjin to upload his Let's Build series on to, alongside a few random playthroughs of games, like Tera or Dear Esther. Over time the channel evolved and now Sjin uploads a number of videos daily. It is the third Yogscast channel to reach 1,000,000 subscribers.
He is our case study for persona because he adapts to his situation and company. Sjin understands the importance of consistency in certain things (like series uploads and building lore and audience relationship) but flexibility in others (such as his interactions with other Yogscast members and a willingness to start from scratch on a new project or series). Way to go Sjin!
LABventures SEASON 1 Deploy! You should have all of the tools you need now to record with Fraps/RaidCall, cut with Premier, and publish on your YouTube accounts.
Don't forget your intro/outro assets and branding of your satellite accounts. Feel free to link to these and know that we might well link to you also! As you edit, be thinking about which video you will want to showcase at our video showcase in a few weeks. Note, all videos should be posted for grading by the video showcase night.
Also keep an eye on http://www.youtube.com/user/labventures this week since we will be posting the first main channel videos too!
So, begin uploading this week if you haven't already! You should get into a steady publishing pattern. If you get a day behind that is ok, though undesired, but DO NOT publish multiple videos per day in a series to "catch up"! If you find that your team has more than the requisite number of videos then you can publish more than one, but they should be in different "series" when you do. Single member teams - you have so few videos comparatively that this should not be a problem for you.
Remember the formula! Two videos per team member per week times three weeks times three projects means six videos per person per project - or eighteen videos per person this semester. Since there are 23 students in this class, that means the LABventures project will be publishing 18 x 23 = 414 videos! distributed across the 17 or so teams this semester. At approx 10 min each, this is 4,140 minutes or 69 hours of content from this class -- Cool!
LABventures Assemble! Great job all on the first ever LABventures deployment. The teleporters worked like a charm and most of you are now well established in your new spawn zones. If you weren't able to sleep and reset your spawn, try to do so asap sometime this week. The main channel (LABventures) will be posting its first video soon, so watch for that here, but don't fret if you still don't know how to edit/post - we will cover that on Monday night, then have some more surprises for your team in the MC server.
Remember -- MC is not required for the projects, but any time we do a demo project in class for participation like this week, you should be doing a similar thing with your own game of choice and always always always record it!
Be planning your posting schedule now though! Since it's six videos per person per project (2 per week) you will need to figure out how to space them out to all be in by the due date without bombing us with content too fast! It can be tricky, but it's not really that hard.
Happy LABventuring! -Doc
And we are back! For this week's in-class tech demo you will need:
