It's been nearly three weeks since I've written but I've continued making progress by thinking issues through. Technical issues have arisen due to my attempts to update enable Bass, (eB), eG, eK and eD to be Vista and Mac compatible. I also want to make the video and sound files embedded into the HTML using flash so that no other third party programs need to open.
As for Main Menu, Ethics approval seems to be the main big step. I'll look into this more later in the week. I also attended an interesting Maths PD last Friday. Although many Maths activities are best with hands on resources, the explanation of key concepts requires sequence and logic much like musical theory. I might try scripting some maths teaching episodes for future animations.

Today was a real breakthrough. I stayed home with a sore throat but before I'd even gotten out of bed I recalled the term "Storyboard". I've now replaced "Main Menu" with Storyboard as my title because I think it's a more descriptive term and better still, it's not inherently a computer term at all.

Progress on Storyboard has been slow lately due to the Film Festival I'm working on. I might use this Journal space as more of a "to do" list to keep me focused at times like this when I can't give it my full attention.
I've delegated the update of eB, eK, eG and eD to enable software as they could easily implement these changes themselves which would free up my time.
The next logical step with this thesis is to complete (start!) the ethics approval documentation. I also think it would be helpful to have a "to do list" where I write down ideas, tasks and links.
