  • My Class Needs to update the RAM in the computers to import and edit HD video footage

    Launched October 11th, 2017 Project Deadline January 30th, 2018

    My Students

    I teach multiple blocks of Media Arts and Film, where every year we make short films. Many students at the school take these courses at some point. I also teach Social Studies where we've interviewed people and made documentaries using these computers.

    How will this project impact them?

    We've built up a great program for making movies, including some great new equip. The problem now is the computers we are using are having a difficult time processing the high definition footage we are now able to film. Importing times sometimes take the entire class to transfer from a memory card to a computer, wasting students' time. Sometimes class has ended and it's still in the middle of importing. It's frustrating and diminishes their excitement as they slowly wait for loading...loading... Secondly, we are unable to update our imacs to newer operating systems because they don't have enough RAM. Our operating system is 3 OS's old. This prevents us from updating, using more current programs, and the ones we use are no longer supported so their glitches are things we have to live with. I would like to update to a smoother, quicker, error-free experience for the students to create in.
