Author of Invitation to Your Madrigal DinnerLeanna had the responsibility of writing the content for the site. She used several different writing programs and email. Email was used to collect permission statements, interviews, and organize meetings. She also used Netscape Composer when setting up the appearance of this web site's pages. On average, Leanna felt she worked 25 hours a week or more. To prepare, Leanna went to and participated in local madrigal performances. She also talked to people who had more experience with madrigals than she did.
This is Leanna's second year working on a ThinkQuest site. Last year Sarah and Leanna worked with an oversea's partner in Egypt, Nora to create the site, A Woman Called Egypt. A Woman Called Egypt is a site that teaches information about Cleopatra VII through aspects of an original play.
ThinkQuest has been a good experience for Leanna because
she feels that the program allows her to explore areas she would never
have a chance to explore anywhere else.
Computer Technician of Invitation to Your Madrigal DinnerHaley had the responsibility of proof reading the site and making sure the links work correctly. She used Netscape Composer to edit the page appearance. She also used Adobe Photoshop for scanning and adjusting images. VideoWave and RealPlayer producer were used to create the video clips. Haley's prior experiences with webpages includes a webpage design class at Galesburg High School as well as some work on some individual websites.
This is Haley's first year working
on a ThinkQuest site. The experience has taught her how to work with a
group for one common goal. It has also given her the chance to learn about
different software, such as VideoWave, that she would not have otherwise
dealt with. She also feels that working on ThinkQuest with a Mac
has given her a greatly widened area of experience.
