Spring 2015 – 43 – Final Project

Your acquired design skills have allowed you to produce a number of professional looking documents in numerous formats. Your goal in this final project is to collect the best of these documents, format them for display on the web and produce a Flash animation that showcases your best design work of the year.


  • Produce a Flash animation using Motion Tweens and Keyframes.
  • Utilize sound in Flash movies.
  • Export images for the Web.
  • Import images and sound to the Stage or the Library.
Student-Friendly Objective:

  • I can produce a complete Flash animation using Motion Tweens and Keyframes that showcases my best design work of the year.

Topics Discussed:
  • Import
  • Extend Timeline
  • Keyframes
  • Layers



  • First, look through all of your completed assignments and choose the three that represent your best work in this class.
  • Next, using the Adobe Flash techniques studied in class, design a Flash animation that showcases each of the assignments you have chosen.
  • Create an 800×600 ActionScript 3.0 animation with 30 FPS.
  • Export an example of your chosen assignment from the program you used to produce it, and import it into your Flash animation’s Library.
  • Use Motion Tween animations and text to showcase each assignment.
  • For each assignment, you should have the following information:
    1. The name of the assignment (i.e. Christmas Ad)
    2. The program you used to produce the assignment (i.e. Adobe InDesign CS5, Adobe Photoshop CS5)
    3. The date the assignment was completed.
    4. A sentence or two describing what you think you did best on the assignment. (What do you like best about the work? What made you select it as one of your best works?)
    5. A sentence or two describing what you think you could have done better on the assignment. (What could you have done better if you had more time, put in more effort, or used a different technique?)
  • Select a music clip to import as background music for your animation, import it into your Flash animation’s Library and place it into your animation’s timeline so it plays along with your animation.
  • Your animation should use as many frames as you need to showcase your three projects. Preview it to make sure it plays properly. (Make sure the audience has enough time to read your information! Try to read it out loud to make sure you have enough time and extend the number of animation frames if it goes by too quickly.)
  • You may only use audio, images and text that you have created yourself. This includes music, artwork, photographs and animations. Anything you did not create yourself may not be used.
  • Be creative! Make your animation interesting. Mister M has a very short attention span…
  • The completed .fla file for this assignment is due in folder number 43 by end of day on Friday, May 15th for seniors, and Monday, May 18th for all others.

Spring 2015 – Chap 20 – Wireless Networking Project


  • I can demonstrate my understanding of computer networks, network operating systems and wireless networking by assembling a functional directional antenna.



Topics Discussed:

  • Chapter 20: Wireless Networking



  1. Turn in your Project Team Contract and Project Team Work Plan (available on StudentsTempFiles server) if you have not already.
  2. Proceed with the first identified steps in your Project Team Work Plan.
  3. You may work in either Room 225 or Room 212, but you will need to notify the instructor if you need access to Room 212.
  4. All tools and equipment are located in Room 212, but the Wireless Network Cards are located in the cabinet above the printer in Room 225.
  5. Please use this time to make progress on your project. We have time provided to complete the project, but no time to waste. It is very likely that your first antenna design may not be your final design, and you will need time to test and make adjustments to your design.
