We generally use WinTV when the teacher wants to feed something, like TV, from the console to students at workstations. This way they can watch on their own computer and capture stills from the media. To open WinTV, either click on the TV icon that has the words WinTV located at the bottom of the screen, or go Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Hauppauge WinTV -> WinTV 2000.
1. FROM THE CONSOLE, select what the appropriate media you will be viewing. If it is TV, select "VIDEOTAPE" under Program Source in the pull-down menu. Then, click the "Transfer" button.
2. Open WinTV from a station and the image should be feeding in. If it is not, make sure that the source at the station is C1 (The source is listed in the lower left hand corner of the window).
3. You can change sources by clicking the thin green button in between Channel Up and Channel Down buttons which are located in the upper left hand corner of the window.
4. For full screen, click the button to the left of the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons and underneath the "WinTV 2000." To exit full screen simply right click.
5. To take a still, click the SNAP button which is located at the lower left hand corner of the WinTV window. Right click it to save it to an appropriate location, such as a student's H Drive.
6. For captions, click the CC button above Photos. Please note that some channels do not have captions.
7. When you are finished, make sure to unclick the transfer button at the console.
1. Insert the DVD or mount the DVD image by opening the image file.

There are two main ways to add commentary to a student's audio recording that he or she gives you. The TMC recommends the first method for its flexibility and overall effectiveness.
1. Open up the student's file in SANAKO Media Assistant Solo or SANAKO Media Assistant Duo.
2. Once ready to record corrections, click "Options" at the top of the SANAKO unit and then "Mark-To-speak Mode." A window will appear. Press "On" in the Mark-To-Speak box and "Set Manually" in the Recording Time Box.
3. Press Play, and the student's recording will begin. When you want to interject something, click the red "record/speak" button. Now say what you would like the student to hear. When you are finished, press Stop. Press Play once more, and SANAKO will play what you just recorded. When your portion is finished, it will revert back to the student's track. Continue to listen, and when you want to say something else, click the red "record/speak" button once again, and repeat the process.
4. Once you have finished correcting the student's work, click "File" and then "Save As". Save it at a location where the student will have access and where the original file will also be located. IMPORTANT! Under the "Save as Type" pull down menu, select "Master file (*.dim)". Do not save it as anything else or you will not have both audio tracks. Also, there will be a corresponding ".did" file. You need both (.dim. .did) to play the file, so keep them together.
1. Open up the student's file in SANAKO Media Assistant Solo or SANAKO Media Assistant Duo. (Generally, you will tell the student where to save the audio recording so that you may access it).
2. At any point as the student's file is playing, click the red "record/speak" button and begin to speak. Your voice will be recorded as well. Click the red button again to stop being recorded.
3. During playback, if both voices are speaking at the same time, you can choose to listen to only one at a time. On the right of the SANAKO program window, there is a vertical slide bar and horizontal slide bar. The vertical slide bar controls the volume, while the horizontal slide bar controls the fade in and out of the voices. Slide the switch all the way to the right to hear one voice alone, all the way to the left to hear the other voice alone, and leave it in the middle to hear them simultaneously.
4. Recording over a track you have already recorded over will eliminate the first record over. The student's track and your second track will be the only two that stay.
5. When you are finished, click "File" and then "Save As". Save it to wherever you would like the student to be able to retrieve it from. IMPORTANT! Under the "Save as Type" pull down menu, select "Master file (*.dim)". Do not save it as anything else or you will not have both audio tracks. Also, there will be a corresponding ".did" file. You need both to play the file, so keep them together.
Before you even start:
1. Create a folder in your H:/ drive, and call it "public_html"
2. All files and pages in your website must be placed within the public_html folder
3. Your eventual web address will be "http://home.wlu.edu/~YOURUSERNAME" in lower-case
1. Frontpage, like MS Word, automatically brings you to a blank webpage. As you become more accustomed to Frontpage, you will notice many similarities to other Microsoft software, especially MS Word.
2. In the bottom-left corner of the Frontpage window, you should see a horizontal bar indicating your 'view' of the webpage. Design view is the easiest and simplest interface to use, especially if you have little knowledge of HTML. Preview view will show you exactly how the webpage should look when viewed in a browser from the internet.
3. Use the text and font controls as you would in MS Word. You can insert pictures and WordArt in the same way. (Insert --> Picture --> then make your selection)
So what's different from Word?
1. New functions in Frontpage include: background, hyperlinks, pictures, horizontal lines, and tables.
2. Change the background of your webpage to an image or color (Format --> background)
3. To make text link to other pages, highlight it and right click, then select "Insert Hyperlink", or press Ctrl+K. The menu will prompt you to choose the type of hyperlink.
4. Images can be made to link to other pages in the same fashion.
5. Horizontal lines can be added to create divisions and compartments within your page.
6. Tables are the nuts and bolts to a page's design and layout. They are often necessary to ensure that images and text go where you want them to go on your page.
When creating tables, keep the following in mind:
1. Tables can have their own background colors.
2. Tables have a border between cells that can be made invisible or have their own color as well.
3. Cells and Rows can always be modified by right-clicking within their areas in design view, then selecting either table or cell properties.
4. Cell spacing is the amount of space between individual cells within a table.
5. Cell padding is the amount of space between the outline of a cell and content within a cell.
One more thing...
1. Your home page within the public_html folder must be named "index"
2. The server on which your website is hosted does not instantaneously update information. Please be patient!
3. It is suggested that you place all your images within one folder, so that you can keep your public_html folder organized.
