Guidelines for submissions
(a) The fully “official” version of any submission is by copying the file(s) or a digital version of the written text (for essays etc.) to the online submissions system “subsys”. This must always be submitted by the due date, and will be treated as the real submission for any formal purposes. Go here and login via EASE: subsys.eca.ed.ac.uk. There is an upload folder for each person, for each submission.
(b) Where asked, you should also upload your submissions to www.infrared.eca.ed.ac.uk/. It is a requirement that you tag each file uploaded with the appropriate metadata.
Note that the infrar.ed submission is NOT the official submission, so do make sure you have submitted to the subsys first.
Digital Resources (sound, images, animations, flash files, software/code etc)
- Name your files so that it is clear which part of the submission each file constitutes.
- Upload the files as a single zip to the subsys.
- Upload the files to Infrar.ed with suitable metadata where requested in the project brief of a particular course.
- You must upload a digital copy of the essay in pdf format to the subsys.
- Two copies of each essay should be printed out and handed into the ECA Postgraduate Office (when requested in the course you’re taking).
- Place the site it in the ’submissions’ directory of your world-readable webspace folder. There is a subfolder for each website submission. Ensure that your site works in this location. The best way to use these is actually to build your site in this location from the start. So that we always know exactly how to view it, your website for the submission should appear online using exactly the URL derived from the name of the folder, e.g.: …/your_folder/submissions/idm1/. This will only work if you have an index.html file directly in that folder (not in another folder inside that one), so please construct your site this way.
- You must still also copy the content of this folder into the subsys. This ensures that nothing has changed on the site between the submission deadline and marking, whilst also ensuring that a working version remains online.
For all submission dates, please see the Programme Calendar.
What your work should consist of
As noted elsewhere in this handbook and in course regulations, please note Project work may only contain visual, sonic and interactive resources that are developed within the class, by you or your colleagues this year. This is in order to (1) help you develop skills in using resources creatively, responsibly and with appropriate acknowledgement, (2) enable you to publish material on the Internet without the risk of violating copyright.
So you may not use or adapt external copyrighted, even creative commons or shareware resources, such as photographs, smileys, icons, video or sound or music clips, animated gifs, CD tracks, mp3 clips, etc.
