Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Journal Entries- Prototypes, Design Brief Research and Learning Logs


Each week students will be creating a visual journal entry that allows them to explore the Graphic Design of others (specifically those published in magazines). Each week the assignment will be specific to the Project (Design Brief) they will be creating and that will be published on their weebly. They will also use the Journal to take notes during class lectures and demos.

The intent of the Journal Entry or Design Brief research is to allow students to explore Graphic Design in all its facets. This will also promote students to be prepared for the Projects. This is part of a portfolio of Visual Literacy process that they will post on their weebly. Students journals will be a reflection and documentation of their growth.
