Uploading your Final K-Film

Remember for your first, individual, K-films you used a FTP program to upload them to web server? For the final projects you do the same thing, but the location is slightly different. When you log in to the server using FTP please go to the im1 folder, and inside that open the projects folder (not the 2014 folder you used for your individual projects). This is where your projects go.

  • create a folder for your project
  • the folder name should be lower case, contain no spaces, or punctuation
  • inside this folder place the index.html and data folder for your Korsakow project
  • if you put it here the url to your work will be

Copyright and Your Projects

The final work needs to only use material that you the have rights to use. This is because the work will be published online (and no, the fact it is for education doesn’t mean you get an out, that only applies if the work is not published). If you want to use music then you need to make sure you’re allowed to. Creative commons licences are usually the simplest way to do this. Creative commons does not equal free to use though. All it means is that the rights are declared in advance, without needing to ask, unlike traditional copyright. It is perfectly possible to have creative commons licenced work that excludes any reuse. (A very good intro is this YouTube clip, and here is an outline of the different licences.

The Essay Submission Form Says No

If you go to submit your essay and the link provides a “Form Not Published” error, you are looking at when not logged in to Google with your RMIT identity. You need to be logged as a RMIT student. Why? Because I don’t want a form filled with rubbish from every dill on the internet. And also it automatically collects your RMIT name which is a simple way to confirm that you are you.
