Devil's Digest
Course Content

 

Curriculum

This page was designed to be a support resource for the "Devil's Digest" students. It covers all content presented in class, including the projects, models, step-by-step guides, self-paced video tutorials and grade sheets. The class room and computers are open to the students everyday: before school, break, lunch and after school.

The students are taught a broad range of multimedia skills so that they can produce the campus video magazine. Within weeks, they are all contracting stories, storyboarding, filming, editing, review and finally submitting their news story, all within a tight deadline.
