Project documentations are collected on the university-wide file server (filer). Submission details are announced by lecturers, but usually comply with the following requirements:
The Media Archive is the platform for collaborative work, sharing and archiving of media at the ZHdK. It is available to students, lecturers and staff. In addition to the storage on the university-wide file server (filer), archiving the projects - especially diploma theses - on the Media Archive is mandatory for students. You can find a specific manual how to upload your project documentation to the Media Archiv here.
The IAD directories are stored on the DDE volume: smb://zhdk;email@example.com/DDE.
Documentation must be submitted via the following directory: DDE > VIAD > ABGABEN. In addition, submissions are sorted by course in the corresponding semester directory (XX_FS, XX_HS):
Folders on the 1st hierarchical level should bear the name of the student or of the student group. First and last names must be separated by a space. Use „ - “ to separate the names of projects involving two or more students. Use last names only for groups (i..e, more than 3 students).
From the 2nd hierarchical level, folders and files should only bear initials. Use the underscore sign to separate initials from further names. Folders containing your project groups are stored on this level. We have illustrated the structure with a group submission. In all other cases, create three files beginning with your initials and separated by an underscore sign. Use an underscore sign and the folder title after your initials.
Images should be labelled with a number and an unambiguous term. Numbering begins with 01. Use an underscore sign to separate numbers and terms.
Create a text file containing the following information, which is required for the IAD website. Also include all closing credits appearing at the end of your video.
Text files may be submitted in English and/on in German and should contain:
|Project title||max. 100 characters|
|Short description||min. 250 – max. 400 characters|
|Project description||min. 1000 characters|
