The material included in the Perspective and Interaction sections of each module is intended to
provide you information and to give you issues to think about. These overviews are not intended
to be used to help you complete your essay. In other words, please use the ideas from the
overviews, but do not use their language. As well, do not use any outside research or information
when completing this assignment. I am interested in what you have to say.
Video files tend to be large, so upload times to the Dropbox will vary depending on your Internet
connection speed. Before you submit your video, convert it to either a .wmv or .mov file
as these file types will be most readily viewable by your instructor. There are many free video
conversion software packages available on the Internet. Just search for, select, and download the
one you want to use and follow the instructions for converting videos. You may want to compress
your video as well. Like conversion software, there are many free compression software packages
available on the Internet.
PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU CAN'T STAY WITHIN MY BUDGET. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS ASSIGNMENT.
