Are you curious about what was used to make this brochure and who worked on it? If so, you've come to the right place.
Although the entire department has helped to write the brochure (everyone wrote their own faculty page and at least one of the course descriptions), the majority of the work was done by the departmental brochure committee - Dr. Brett Elliott, Dr. Karla Oty, and Dr. Christopher Moretti. And of course, our students have played a big role by volunteering to do the video interviews and letting you know what our department is really like - so we'd like to once again thank Thomas Faulkenberry, Jeremy Fields, Karri Brannam, Darcy Miller, Cassondra Darling, and Jerome Noel.
We used quite a few technical resources in creating this brochure for you. As far as software goes, the individual web pages that make up the brochure were created and edited using Macromedia Dreamweaver, which many of us also use for editing our web pages on Southeastern's web site (www.se.edu). We decided to do the brochure as a set of web pages simply because it is hard to find a computer out there today which doesn't have at least one web browser. The photographs were taken with an Olympus C-2000 Z digital camera and then edited with Adobe Photoshop. Most of the mathematical images you've seen in the brochure (including the animated graphics) were created with Wolfram Research's Mathematica and then exported as GIF files or Quicktime movies. The video interviews were taped on a Sony TRV-315 digital camcorder, then transferred via Firewire (also known as the1394 or iLink interface) to an Apple PowerMac G4/400 and then edited with Apple's Final Cut Pro software. The results were then exported to Quicktime movies and saved to the CD. We chose the Quicktime format for the movies because the player is free, available for all platforms, and has a wide range of compression schemes built in (so we could guarantee that the movies would play on older computers).
We hope you enjoyed this brochure - if you have any questions or comments about it, send them to Dr. Karl Frinkle .
And of course, we hope to see you at Southeastern!!!
