[[Wordpress Workshop + Set up Group Google Drive Folder]]
Welcome to “Introduction to Multimedia Composition: Cinema Appreciation in the Digital Age.” This will be our course website. You’ll find the syllabus in the menu above (or at this link).
We will also be using Google Drive to share resources and assignments.

In order to share your work, you’ll have to sign on to Google using your scarletmail.rutgers.edu email address. You can find more info about the Google/Scarletmail collaboration here.
