Project Guidelines

Module by: Peter Abboud. E-mail the author

CONTEST ENTRY/OBJECTIVE: The objective of the Contest is to produce a video of a television program idea. The television program idea can be for a scripted or reality show.

PROJECT GUIDELINES: It will be your group's task to come up with an engaging, creative and unique television program idea. You have been placed in a group with students who share some similar interests in terms of genre and style, but it will still take a great deal of compromise and flexibility.

1. Your group will outline its television program idea into a written " pitch" that will be presented to the class on the day of the presentations

2. Each group member will write a short scene for the proposed television program (approximately 3-7 pages in screenplay format)

3. The group will choose one scene to perform for the class. The group will also have another option for the presentation. Instead of performing the scene in class, the group may film its scene and screen it on the day of the performance

EXTRA CREDIT: Your group may also create a teaser commercial for the proposed television idea, regardless of whether or not the scene is filmed or performed live.

NOTE:  If your group wants to have an opportunity to enter the contest, it must either film its scene or create a teaser commercial. Please follow the rules and guidelines carefully. However, you do not need to create a film in order to meet the requirements of the project. Max file size for film entries: 100MB, and no longer than 7 minutes. See Official Contest Rules in the project briefcase under "Project Related Resources & Links."

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
