New Kindle Book
There are now a number of different revision and study resources for the GCSE Moving Image Arts set films. The latest of them is the KINDLE version of a guide to all five of the films (plus a chapter on GENRE). Available on the Kindle store, it can be downloaded and read on a hardware Kindle (or Kindle Fire), and on any other device with the Kindle App. You can get the Kindle App for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Windows Phone, Mac, and PC. This all-in-one guide replaces the previously-published Bride of Frankenstein Study Guide, which is now incorporated into the one guide. Within this Moving Image Arts Study Guide are links to complementary presentations, hosted on Google Docs.
Here’s the link to the Moving Image Arts Study Guide on Kindle. It’s a bargain £1.53, but there are FREE WEEKENDS coming up, so watch out for those.
FIRST FREE WEEKEND: 27 and 27 JANUARY 2013
SECOND FREE WEEKEND: 1 – 3 FEBRUARY 2013
iTunes U Course
Next up, I’ve created an iTunes U course as a place to find study and revision materials for the five set films for GCSE Moving Image Arts.
iTunes U is a free app for iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.
Download the app, scroll down on the home page and click ENROL.
Enter the code FV7-KFV-DZD
I will then get an email about a pending enrolment which I will need to approve.
Alternatively, follow the direct link to the course.
The course includes a variety of materials, including four interactive study guides (iPad only) for the five set films. These will download into the iBooks app, which you will also need to download. They’re published separately because they are quite large files containing embedded presentations. If you download the iPad versions, you don’t need the Kindle version.
If you’re accessing the course through an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can’t use the iPad study guides, which only work for iBooks on iPad. Instead, you can download movie versions of all the presentations, which are available as individual files. There are presentations for all five of the set films, and they play back at 5 seconds per slide, though you can of course pause whenever you want. Consider reading the Kindle version of the study guide in conjunction with the movie presentations.
iBooks Study Guides for iPad
If you don’t want to enrol on the iTunes U course, the individual study guides for iPad are also available directly from the iBooks store. Here are the links.
- Bride of Frankenstein
- Romeo + Juliet
- The Wrong Trousers
- Young Frankenstein and A Close Shave
Cottesloe students not able to download iTunes U or the Kindle book can access the presentation files on the school VLE, or on Google Docs (see posts below).
