On May 6th, Mike and Kelvin Met in
Kelvin’s office, this is what we discussed:
scope out the entire project with the understanding that we are developing
the materials primary for MSR and to support XNA’s effort in bringing the
technology to classroom. We will work with MSL under the understanding
that, unless told by MSR, we will not devote specific time to alter our
materials to suit MSL’s needs.
discussed approaches and format for the materials:
lab workbook will be organized similar to our workshops with web-pages
explaining ideas and linking to source code.
lab workbook will not contain much detail concept descriptions. Instead,
we will rely on existing textbook for that purpose.
lab workbook will reference to the textbook, and simply provide examples.
suggest we must work _very closely_
with existing textbook.
discussed the pros and cons of writing the workbook for _a_ textbook:
refer to textbook via a central indirection reference table (IRT), this
way, we can develop concept module
examples (CME) and refer to the IRT for reference to textbook.
can construct an IRT for each textbook
we begin with two reference textbooks then the CMEs will be much more
general, and thus much more adaptable.
discussed organization of the CMEs.
Express IDE: guide and intro (much like our workshop materials)
and learn the software architecture framework exposed to us via the XNA framework
then we can begin with the actual concepts.
and Mike will meet again towards the middle/later of May
schedule is tight this quarter and will start full force working on the
project one week after the school ends
is going on vacation for a month from June 25th to July 21st.
and Kelvin aim to establish working momentum before
Kelvin’s vacation so that materials can continued to be developed.
