My feeling about the final assignment

It is not a perfect work. However, this is the most valuable piece I have ever done. I have received some comments from my classmates and keep modifying my design. Reflection is an important process I have gone through quite often. Sometimes, viewing others' work can give me some insights such as the use of colours etc. As a result, my final product is very different from the original design because I have learnt a lot and made improvements on it.
The use of Flash is an unforgettable experience to me. I have too little knowledge to allow me to finish my work. Therefore, what I rely on is the demos produced by Daniel. I read through his designs again and again and made good use of them in my learning object. Although I have used up a lot of time, it is worth doing that because the sense of satisfaction is so great which overwhelms the problems I have come across.

Revised interactive representation

I have created another Flash file. I still need to solve the following problems.

First, when the present time is 0, the red line will not return to 0.
Second, when the slider is dragged along the line, simple tenses will appear. When the slider is released, progressive tenses will appear.
Third, The sentence - 'I was sleeping at 7' (the position of slider determines the time) should be shown, but I don't know how to display the time for doing exercise (which is the result of movement) in action script.

I have tried to remove the black backgrounds of the pictures in Firework.It is not nicely done. If you have any better suggestions to edit the pictures, please leave a line for me.

Feel free to leave any comments here.
