Additional Assignments Due Monday July 6

1. Explore Google Earth. Create ("Make") a Tour. See if you can figure out how to do it yourself. It is a bit tricky so if you can't figure it out from the following tutorials, we'll go over it is class Monday night. Make a tour with about 8-10 "stops". Include a movie (also called a "tour") if you can. In any event, have a PLAN for a trip with you on Monday night if you have trouble executing the tour itself. It is not difficult by it is sort of messy!

Here are some places to start
Creating a Narrated Tour
How to Create A Simple Tour in Google Earth
Google Touring: A Tutorial

More can be found by searching Google for Create Tour in Google Earth and other similar searches.

Notice also that the buttons open a new window. This is a feature that is probably new to you. To accomplish this you add target="_blank" immediately after the space that follows the a in the a tag. I will show you how this is done on Monday.

2. Be prepared to work on your Professional Blog. Have your outline ready at the least. See the instructions previously posted as well as the examples given in a previous post.

3. Have a great 4th of July and don't worry about the Google Earth assignment if you have trouble. We'll cover it all in class. But if you can figure it out on your own, that is great!
