Fall 2004 Classes; 36 page BG News issues

This fall I have 2 classes. Art History 146 (Western) at 8 freaking 30 in the AM on M W and F. I took that over the 3 hr. class one day a week. The second class is Economics 200 at 10:30 AM on M W and F. I am not gonna complain about that 8:30 Art History class (too much) as my classes are done by 11:20. I haven't been posting much lately because we have just put out the 2 biggest papers of the year. Both the Freshman and Welcome issues of the BG News are 36 pages. The new system works, and works well. This is a major success for me as the hardware, software, and new templates and libraries were all overhauled by me this summer. The process for both editorial and production is also new. It all went well. These 12 and 14 page papers will be a walk in the park after two 36 pagers! I am just so proud of all the students involved, because they had to learn a new workflow and a new software package, InDesign, in a very short period of time. The students have done great, and these first two papers look great. I have to give them a lot of credit on a job well done, and I think they will do even better work as they become more familiar with InDesign. I originally though that teaching InDesign would be harder then Quark. I was wrong. Teaching InDesign is so much easier. And I am very thankful for that. I keep tweaking the templates and libraries. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but as I found out the templates and libraries we use needed a lot of work. I still have things to fix, and I find more little things as we produce more papers. I made a long list of things to fix Thursday when we put together the Freshmen issue. I will fix those this week. If that isn't enough for my first day of college this fall, our Student Publications graduate student is starting work today. I have plenty of work that she can help with, mostly web sites that need attention. More on that later.
