(11 MAR 20)

Western has officially transitioned to online classes as of 8am, 11 March 2020 due to growing concern for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and is set to last until 20 March 2020.

This is a fluid situation, so stay informed by regularly visiting the WWU website dedicated to this crisis at:


Even though classes are cancelled to help avoid crowds, you are still allowed to use the labs. The building will still be open if you wish to still work there. If the lab is locked, contact either someone in the Design office, or myself. I can provide you with the password to access the lab.


If you need help via email, I am here to help. I've found the best way is for you to ZIP your entire Project 2 code, and then send to me via email. This gives me the best look into what you are working with, and allows me to work with your code. In addition, give me a description of the trouble you are having, and attach any relevant comps or wireframes you think would help in my understanding of your problem/solution.

Reminder on how to work from home and get VPN access:

Course Evaluations

Since we didn’t get to do course evaluations in class on Thursday, I will be sending you a link to complete an online evaluation form for the class. Please take the time to fill this out. Unfortunately, this form is tailored for online classes, but still complete all questions you feel are relevant to this course.

Email/Canvas Announcements

Please continue to check email and canvas notifications for course updates through our final date on Friday, as well as the course evaluation form mentioned above. Also, keep an eye out for future updates regarding the BFA Portfolio Review coming from the appropriate departmental sources.

Project 2: Interactive Storytelling (Dealines Update)

We will not be meeting for our final on 20 March 2020. I have updated the project submission deadline to reflect the end of our finals period: 10am on 20 March 2020.

Other than these two changes, expectations for your Project 2 Finals submission remain the same. For details view our Project 2 page.

Again, I am available via email or canvas for help or questions. See the "HELP" section above for details on how we can do this efficiently.

If you have an questions or concerns as we wrap up this Winter quarter, please don't hesitate to reach out.
