Helping You Succeed

Tips for Success
  • Plan your time – the projects and exercises are time consuming and technically involved. Plan to spend at least seven hours a week on the course work between in-person meetings and class activities.
  • Work with a friend—two heads are better than one when you run into technical, conceptual or creative roadblocks.
  • Save and save again. Back up your work in MULTIPLE locations.
  • Attend class and constantly check the site– each week builds on the previous one. Missing class/content will severely impact your chance to succeed in this class.
  • Ask for help when you have trouble – don’t allow yourself to get behind on new material.

The lab techs and/or tutors can guide you to the needed resources and/or help you with certain tasks.

Make sure you always clean up after yourself and hold all conversations outside of the studio so as not to disturb your peers.

Students with Disabilities Students with disabilities (learning, physical or psychological) who require reasonable accommodations or academic adjustments for a course must be registered with the Office of Disability Services. For any accommodation, the instructor must be presented with the ODS card.

Academic Honesty BCCC fosters an academic community where students and faculty work together to create learning experience that imparts knowledge and forms character. To achieve this, the College requires all members of the community to adhere to the policy of Academic Honesty that can be found in the Student Handbook, the College Catalogue and on the College website.

Digital Media is an academic subject. If you are using digital resources or images in your digital work you MUST cite the source (hyperlinks are acceptable in this medium). Stealing and taking credit for work that is not your own is dishonest and may also be ILLEGAL. Images, songs, text and video can only be used in their entirety if they are in the public domain. Parts of images, songs, text and video may be legal if an argument for “fair use” can be made. If you have specific concerns related to digital media please contact your instructor immediately.
