Template Clean-Up

Transcript: ...but we can fix it! When the template is cleaned up and ready to move, simply collapse all of the tasks into the summary bar Change the start date of the summary bar to the ACTUAL date it's starting on Cut/Paste the summary bar into the target study (will help to have target study open before you "cut") Copy/Paste can be used as well for the faint of heart (remember to delete the original!) The Problem Template Clean Up Josh Lambert Once the summary bar has been successfully pasted into the study, change the name of the summary bar to the appropriate department name (Toxicology, DART, etc.) A project/study has been set up in TRP specifically to address the dropping of templates Project: ASH - Template Clean-up Studies: Toxicology, DART, PDS All of the studies start on January 4, 2010 This date should be used as the "template start date" for when a template is dropped The template can remain in this study for an infinite amount of time before it needs moved to the actual study With the template being dropped in this study, it will not move the LP end date of the target study Adding templates to studies without cleaning them up immediately causes LP End dates to be incorrect These problems will manifest themselves in any view/report/web-view that utilizes the LP End date (i.e., Macro Schedule) By cleaning up these templates in a separate study, the tasks can be dropped in the target study without impacting the LP End date The end result will be a scheduling system that has far more accurate data than what it previously did when looking at all endpoints of an in-life study After the template is initially dropped into this study, the summary bar for the template should be renamed to that of the actual study Now we're getting somewhere... Ok, maybe not... The Solution (Cont'd) We have an issue... As templates are dropped into TRP, the last task(s) will always push the Live Phase End milestone to match the date of those last tasks Once the template has been saved, the Study Wizard is updated to reflect the new LP End date This causes an issue (LP end date being later than is should be) with the new Web View and any view in TRP that utilizes the Live Phase End date (i.e., Tox Studies List) The Culprit The Solution This way, a number of templates can exist in this study at any one time, acting as a "queue" reminding the scheduler that a particular template still needs cleaned up Just kidding Almost there... This way TRP is trying to be smart here, when in reality it is causing more problems that it is solving It assumes that any task that is in the LP should be contained within the two LP dates (start/end) This problem does not exist IF the information is passed back to Central Scheduling and the original dates are re-established after clean up There is a lot of room for error here 3 - February - 2015 Sum Up This normally results in... So what do we do about this? The Solution (Cont'd) ..."Josh! TRP moved my dates again!" Keep going...

DineOnCampus Template Design

Transcript: Resources for students organized in one place Issues with current design My recommendation Conclusion Web design best practices attempt to guide visitors through the e-commerce navigation experience with stimulating visuals, color contrast, and limited clicking options. Objective: to increase e-commerce revenue Multiple Menus Final Product: Learn More now contains ways to connect and learn more about dining services like: +Social media +Blogs +Staff +News DineOnCampus Redesigned Decreased bounce rate: According to KISSmetrics, complex, scattered navigation can leave visitors "helpless, confused, or angry," causing them to leave the site, or "bounce." Increased purchases: A bold call to action button can increase purchasing by 35%, according to a case study done by ContentVerve. Less empty space on underdeveloped pages: a standard e-commerce strategy for the home page template decreases reliance on "update heavy" widgets like calendars, events, and blog posts. New, single menu Resources now contains resources for being healthy and learning about nutrition like: +Nutrition tools +Nutrition links +Nutrition Questions +Choose my Plate Many Links My proposal for the redesigned template includes one menu that has been reorganized and banners featuring e-commerce options to drive gift basket and meal plan revenue. 1. One central navigation bar to lower bounce rate 2. E-commerce capabilities with strong calls to action to increase revenue 3. Content organized logically under menu headers to make template more forgiving of under-developed content The current design displays: 1. Multiple menus 2. Non-intuitive navigation organization 3. No e-commerce functionality, calls to action, or purchasing portals New strategies No E-commerce Current Template: Two menus divide information (and the audience's attention) unnecessarily, creating a disjointed navigation experience. By offering so many clicking choices, DineOnCampus isn't able to guide the audience to important pages. In addition, he number of menu choices may confuse the audience and make it difficult to locate information. Redesigned e-commerce widget with call to action Results DineOnCampus Template Recommendation The current template for DineOnCampus is difficult to navigate, contains many links, and does not contain an e-commerce plugin, information about purchasing options, or calls to action. Recommendation: There are a number of outbound links throughout the page. Links that take the audience off the DineOnCampus website create lost revenue opportunities. In addition, many of the menu options could be consolidated or placed under headings that are more descriptive and intuitive. For example, "Resources" usually contains information to help visitors read up on ideas related to the purpose of the site. Instead, DineOnCampus features "Resource" links that allow visitors to view staff members, events, or other information normally organized under "Connect," "About Us," or "Learn More." The Current Template The current DineOnCampus template has too many menu options and does not foreground e-commerce options. The new template features one organized menu bar and several calls to action to drive meal plan and gift basket purchases. Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures I have created a new template proposal designed to increase revenue through prominent calls to action. In addition, the new design will decrease bounce rates by increasing control over visitor flow by limiting the number of links. The Chartwells Higher Eduction division is looking to redesign the DineOnCampus template to drive revenue generated by meal plan purchases and gift basket purchases (e-commerce). The DineOnCampus sidebar occasionally contains social media information, requests for feedback, or blank space. The sidebar has prime real estate on the webpage because it is above the fold at eye level. The space could be better utilized by providing a call to action button to drive e-commerce sales and revenue.

Transcript: Middle School is a very important time for the students moving up. They are growing up from being little elementary kids transitioning to being an older teen in high school. Studies have shown that students start to lose interest in school when they are in middle school grades (6th -8th). Many people ask why do they lose interest at this time. We will list some of the reason here: In-Classroom Methods Out of Classroom Methods What is the Importance of Fixing this? In our previous section we talked about keeping middle school students surprised in the math classroom. There are many ways to do this but were going to talk about two major ways. Games- Games can be an important way to keep your middle school students interested and on task in the classroom. Of course these games need to be relevant to what your doing in your class. Here are some links to websites for games and activities: Group Activities- In your classroom you probably will have a lot of times where students work individually ,but as teachers you should have times where your students work together in groups. Maybe during a exercise after a lesson or working on a study guide. This is another way to get the students to learn good skills socially and also in the lessons. Why Middle School Students Lose Interest? Home How to Keep Parents Involved Reasons Middle School Students Lose Interest Home Ways to Vary Out Of Classroom Work In-Classroom Methods mean ways to keep students interested in your subject area (in this case math). KEEP THEM SURPRISED Use activities like games and group work What Brings about these Reasons? Reasons Peer Pressure Popularity Drugs Disabilities Why Middle School Students Lose Interest. In-Classroom Methods Out of Classroom Methods Parental Involvement Keep Their Interest Middle School Math Social Problems Starting to Struggle Academically And Many More Parental Involvement KEEP THEM SURPRISED!!! There are some ways you can make your middle school homework more interesting for your students and it will make them enjoy it more also. One way you can do this is to give them assignments like finding jobs that this math lesson could help them do or when doing percentages have them find something in one of their favorite things that has percentages like tax on clothes or shooting percentages. You can also make project more interesting connect to their live and have them understand what their doing and why their doing it so the students don’t think its pointless. As mentioned earlier Middle School is a very important time for students because of the transition time. This is a time where teachers, parents, coaches, or anyone involved with their lives need to try hardest to encourage students to stay on task and work hard because if we as teachers and adult keep them interested and working hard then we are doing out job of leading the future generation. Home Home A good way to keep Middle School students interested in math or academics at all is to keep them surprised in the classroom. Some students get bored with the everyday lecture and homework problems. By keeping your students moving and doing different things in the classroom their interest level will rise and they will stay interested in math and should do well academically. Some ways to keep them surprised it to use games and group work in the class. Reasons Middle School Students Lose Interest. Why these reason present themselves? Why is it IMPORTANT to fix this problem? One of the most important things in schools is having good parent involvement in your class. In math it is statistically known it is one of the more challenging classes in school. So math teachers especially need to have contact with parents and be able to keep them up to date on what is going on in the classroom and if their child is struggling. In the classroom a big question for teachers is how to keep the parents involved with their kids schooling. Well here are some ways to consider and look at: Have an online site for you classroom. This can be a very helpful way to keep your parents involved and let them know what your class is doing and what assignments are dues and when tests are going to be held. Send home weekly progress reports to be signed or maybe every other week. This will let parents know what grades their child is making. Keep these signed reports too so if a parent comes to you saying they had no idea then you can pull it out of your files. Use Activities in the Classroom like Games and Group Work The reasons we listed are some of the major things that cause students to lose interest. We are going to explain why some of these reasons come about. Peer Pressure occurs because sometimes a students friends put pressures on the kid to be a nuisance or do other things to effect the students academics negatively. Drugs can be a huge reason because If a student gets involved with drugs it mean they are

Effective Powerpoint Design

Transcript: Which Linearity to Choose? What is Linear vs Non-Linear? This title is far too dark for this background Linear or Nonlinear References There is nothing inherently wrong with either one, they just serve two very different purposes. Nonlinear allow for an easy presentation of multiple subjects or sub-categories, not always related, such as general design tips and linear vs nonlinear comparison. It allows an easier intractability to refer back to past information. Easy to integrate audience participation. Linear is effective at portraying a clear single subject or goal Timing is generally very predictable and easy to plan. Easy to summarize points or imparting facts. Conclusions Effective Presentation Design Nonlinear Presentations This text should probably be split up into different sub points via bullets but instead I’ve made an unsightly wall of text that is visually overwhelming and distracting to those that are viewing the presentation. The lack of spaces and overuse of text rather than outlining and allowing for the oral presentation to fill in the details also muddles the overall effect of the presentation. Overuse of wacky transitions and overly long animations is incredibly distracting when presenting information. Colors such as light blue or light yellow should probably be avoided for those with color blindness. Besides too many pictures, many are covering text or serve no real purpose. Each design of presentation isn’t good or bad, just used for a different purpose. Linearity is focused on fact presentation. Nonlinearity is focused on interactivity and flow. Slide design should conform to design standards. Color should stand out against the backdrop but not be blinding. Maintain a color scheme throughout for cohesion. Over use of transitions and animations is a major distraction. Having text structured makes it more clear. This being underneath and smaller text provides hierarchy and shows this is a related point. This also allows the view a clear means of identifying what you’re talking about. Clarity in text contrast and pictures to assist but not clutter is key to good design. This white, for example, shows well against the red backdrop. Ensuring images don’t cover text is also important. Good Keeping it structured and outlined. Use bullets to show what points are subordinate to overarching statements Especially for voiced presentations, don’t include every word you wish to say in the text, just outline the points. Light transitions and low stylization. Transitions can keep a presentation interesting as long as it’s not overly utilized. Use of pictures or video (non-autoplay) to support your point. Linearity allows for a step-by-step structured series of slides most effective in conveying facts or information that has little need for audience participation. Despite the transitions making it seemingly non-linear, this presentation is linear, as it follows a fixed path. Good and Bad Design Choices Thank you! We will discuss the best ways to make the best presentation possible. Picking between a linear or nonlinear style. Effective means of conveying a message. Pitfalls many presentations succumb to. Nonlinearity tools like prezi greatly help in managing clutter. The ability to zoom into smaller text allows it to not take up space on previous slides. Transitioning to focus on a video or picture is also very easy with varying slide sizes. Good Example Linear and Non-Linear Ways to Make the Best Presentation Linear Follows a set path going forward from slide to slide. Can’t go back to a previous slide. Generally forces conclusions for a section to be at the end. Uncomplicated, but that’s okay. Non-Linear Can reference back to past slides more easily. Can jump only to certain slides of information. Link between slides more similar to a website. Effective for unguided presentations. Now that you have an idea of which type of presentation to choose, slide design is also important. Many powerpoints stumble because of ineffective or overly cluttered design. Many mistakes come at the most fundamental level, making the wrong type of presentation. Being able to identify if it’s a simple, single message or user interactivity is key in initial design choice. Over-focus on nonlinearity in a powerpoint that really only needs to be a linear summary can seem overly complex. Linearity can be perceived as boring.

Clean House Design

Transcript: Scenic Design The Black Box theatrical space will be used due to the fact that the play is set in a living room. This stage set up will induce a homier feel throughout the audience. The audience will be arranged in a thrust set up to also give off a more intimate feel. The thrust set up allows the audience to be on all sides of the stage, which is as if the audience were actually in the living room. The Clean House Design Concept Statement Theatrical Space Stage Design Sketches The lighting will be primarily white throughout the start of the play to show the bright blandness of Lane's life and contrast Matilde's black clothes and sorrow. When Lane comes back to her house with the knowledge of her husband cheating on her, the lights will begin to very gradually turn more red for both anger and passion. Sun light will be shining on Ana’s balcony until her sickness becomes worst, and then the lighting would become darker but not completely pitch black dark. Also a spotlight will come on Matilde when she tells one of her jokes, and for the first few when she doesn't get any laughs they will just go out abruptly, but when she tells one that gets laughs it will go out more gradually giving her the glory of a good joke. The Clean House play is a very unique reading with many different twists and turns. Although most of the characters were forced to face some sort of life changing misfortune, they each found a way to adjust to their new circumstances. Therefore, unpredictability and adaptation are key points in the design concept for this play. The unpredictability within the theatre design is Charles and Anna’s balcony. Instead of the structure simply residing above the stage the entire time, it will unexpectedly rise from the middle of Lane’s living room. The costumes will display adaptability, in that, Matilde wears all black. However, when she has flashbacks of them, both the lighting and her costume will become very colorful. In other words, this is geared to display that she wears all black to adapt to her new circumstances of having such a tragedy. This theme will be displayed throughout the play through actions and set up. This presentation will demonstrate our theatrical representation of the play "The Clean House" by Sarah Ruhl. We will go over the theme statement we are trying to display, as well as the concept and the design techniques we will use to articulate this theme. The next design consists of the space around the table in the middle of Lane’s living room; that space rises (from cords) into the air to meet with French doors and railings to create Ana and Charles’ balcony above the living room. Ana’s balcony rises from Lane’s living room to represent how Charles’ new life was created by leaving Lane’s. The table from the living room rises with the platform and a replacement table Is put into the living room and removed when the balcony is lowered again. During the apple throwing scene, a small space between the balcony and Lane’s living room will be lit with a blue light to represent the sea. The apples will be small red balloons and will float down through the blue lighting (the sea) and into Lane’s white living room. Lane’s living room is put underneath (at the bottom of) the “sea” to represent how her life is now at a low, since her husband left her. A fake tree will be used to represent the yew tree. Costumes Lane: Lane always wears white the entire time because she’s older in age, she’s also a doctor so white signifies her busy yet important life. She is feeble and cold. She has on an all whit turtle neck with a white sweater. White also represents purity which shows how vulnerable she is to Charles. Matilde: Matilde wears all black which shows that she’s there to clean only. The black also signifies death and pain, this shows that she lost her parents, and she is still hurt by it. She also has a black coat on that is closed in the beginning of the show, but when she starts becoming more acquainted with Virginia is opened up. Charles: Charles is dressed in a shirt and tie. The tie is a striped red and white pattern to represent his true love for Ana (red) when he is hiding behind the bland fake love for Lane (white). He also has pens in his pockets and a stethoscope around his neck to show his importance as a doctor also. Virginia: Virginia is dressed very orderly with everything matching and clean. She wears a long skirt with a long sleeve shirt tucked in with a matching cardigan. This shows how she is clean and orderly. Ana: Ana is in a hospital gown the entire time but it has been altered to expose just a little more than a regular hospital to show exactly what about her Charles is attracted to. Lighting The Black Box theatrical space will be used due to the fact that the play is set in a living room. This stage set up will induce a homier feel throughout the audience.
