RESULTS

While making the video, we faced a problem that we can’t really fit all the information into it. So teams working with Robotica Educativa decided to make a report describing the ideas and researches more widely.

See SWAG report here –  swag report

And here is the report presenting 3 solutions from 3 teams – Final Report

And here is our video ✌

Measure Our Success or Failure

As i had several times conversation with our Client service and other members of group from the beginning, our biggest challenge was figure out the best solution for our NGO. In past pervious weeks we came up with one solution which we feel it is useful for our NGO, all is based on financial issue. As a production manager i believe our solution is one of the successful one for them, however the other two groups they have their own solution as well.

On the other hand, The most impact which we made for our client in my opinion is that, We try to connect our NGO with educational organisation such as university and library.

Summery Of The Production Process

In the first place, with two other groups we came to the conclusion to use Prezi to make the video. Prezi is a cloud-based (SaaS) presentation software and storytelling tool which is used for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas. In the video, we have presented the problems and the solutions on robots. Every group had the responsibility to appoint a person to record their voice and provide the solution they have came up with. At the end, we edited and mixed the recorded voice with the presentation with Prezi and made the final version that was made into a video. You can see the 3 solutions we came up in the final version.

Hangout with Alan

So here’s our final hangout within this module and it was super helpful. We were mainly talking about the final video, of course. There are some challenges our team faced while making a video draft. Alan shared some really simple way to solve it. This hangout also gave us some new ideas and inspiration for the video. I do wish other teams find useful tips in this video ✌

Last hangout with nancy

YES OUR LAST HANGOUT WITH NANCY!nancy

It was a shame we had difficulties recording the video as there was something wrong with our internet. However all the answers are kept in our head and we would love to share it with you. The last tips and advice she handed us to end this project with success!

We told her about our problem which was that we had a hand full of information of our solution to chose from and asked how could we cramp all of it in the video. Well the answer was that just make sure you highlight the main points. The layer of the onion. She mentioned that it is also impossible to put in all the details of our solution in the video. So she said it is not mandatory to put in all just fit the most vital points in. And its okay if you leave the rest of your information on your blog or your report. She even said the transition of the video is important! The part where each group connects. She said make sure it has a good transition as in make it clear that the next solution is coming by a different group. And use a enthusiastic voice!

A huge tip she threw to us was to add links of the blog and your report to your video. As the report is a continuation to the video. A more explicit copy. We also ask about the conclusion and she said put in ‘what have you learned’. So please feel free to use these last pieces of advice to form your final video. Good luck!

And finally i would like to give a huge thank you to Nancy for guiding us the entire journey!

THANK YOU NANCY!

Producing our video

This week we have been creating our video to present to our NGO for our final presentation. We started collecting ideas in the previous weeks leading up to this week, so we already had a theme and a plan of action. In our Monday class we sat down with all three groups and decided on the direction of our video; we decided to link our ideas in a creative way which kept the theme consistant throughout. Below is a screen shot of our presentation theme, we chose to link all our ideas using robots. Each idea is assigned to a different robot and the introduction and conclusion will also have one too. The large robot at the end will overlook all 3 ideas and will be our closing statement for our NGO.

In the previous week we created the first draft of our video, which was beneficial in that we encountered problems which we learnt to overcome. For example, the first problem was matching the sound with the image, as Prezi does not allow you to record sound. Therefore we had to figure out a way of recording our Prezi then overlaying our sound, so we used a screen sharing programme which allowed us to flick through our presentation but record it to make it into a youtube video. But then we faced another problem as the quality of the programme wasn’t satisfactory so it produced a video that was lagging and it didn’t look professional. So does anyone know a good screen sharing programme? One thing we did finalise this week is our script; we tried to keep it simple yet informative, and we wanted to only include the main sections of our proposal as we only had a limited amount of time. Below is our first draft of the video, the themes will be completely different but the content and images will be the same, check it out and let us know what you think!

WISH US LUCK!!

This is the last week of module 1 which we actually started working on our video. Unfortunately, one of our group mates quitted the program and we end up with four people in our group. This actually brought a big challenge to our group to get over with the work and dividing the tasks between four of us instead of five! This week we started making the video and we are still busy and focused on recording and drawing our final video. We also decided on making a new storyboard which would convey our final idea much better to the viewer as our previous storyboard was a bit vague and not clearly showed the message. Our final script which we wrote last week is a big help for us in recording session of the video. These, storyboard and script, actually help us a lot to organize our ideas and put them into a final video indeed. We distributed the tasks for video editing to Daniel and Li jing, Liu does the drawing as he is very talented in drawing, and I am in charge of writing the introduction and the conclusion of our video. I am also going to be the spokesperson and going to voice over the video! I am actually going to tackle this big challenge of speaking as fast as possible while introducing the cure of our idea to our NGO.

our new storyboard!

In my opinion, our team work this week was the best. All group members knew their tasks and were busy working on their tasks during project community class. The most important thing is our collaboration while everybody does a different task. We all very appreciate to help each other and make sure none is struggling with his or her tasks. As we were three groups with 3 different ideas for our NGO, we tried to make one storyline out of our 3 ideas and make a report of them to provide to our NGO as well. We are on our way to finishing the video and that means the end of project community. It was a great experience of working in groups, it had ups and downs in teamwork, I think it could have been done a lot better if we have gotten together earlier in previous weeks as well. Also most important group work, decision making, listening to others, tolerating each other, coming up with different ideas and putting it up together and meeting up made this project community a big challenge for me and my groupmates.

In short, wish us LUCK!

Personal Blog Reflection

During the past weeks we have been working with Robotica Educativa to try to help them get all the products they want to those who doesn’t have much money. We have studied different ways in which people could use for the advantage of their business, but what the process with project community has really teach me is how to work in groups.

Initially we worked in a team of 5, unfortunately my communication with my team members in the beginning was not enough, I think this lead us to a misunderstanding point where they thought I didn’t care about the project (maybe not!) while I thought I was being excluded, which is why I worked on my own. I take the experience to learn that groups do not necessary have to be the best friends to carry on a well-done work, sometimes it just requires time to understand how each other work.

When I started working with the group more closely I realized that some members of group have incredible individual strengths such as drawing which could help us a lot for the final video. It made me realized that for the next time I work on groups I should give it all the time necessarily to understand each other and to make sure there are no more misunderstanding between us.
