Using Ning for Advanced Music Video portfolio Ning allows you to upload your Music Video Production project. From September 2009 all A Level Media Studies production work has to be submitted electronically – the art books are not allowed any more. This is a requirement of the examining board OCR and not a City College Norwich rule. Managing your Ning: Your work needs to be accessed by the OCR A Level examiner. As such all of your work must be uploaded onto your Ning Social Network. Most of your written work will be presented in a Powerpoint or Google Presentation. Research tasks 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 should all be typed up either: • Onto a Powerpoint and uploaded to www.slideshare.net OR • Onto Google Docs – Presentation (Google’s version of Powerpoint) Your work in Ning must be easily accessed – below is a template you can use: For this task I want to embed my pre-production slides onto my Ning site.
