MAX Agency Press Release - August 26, 2014

Max Agency has recently welcomed new talent including future high fashion and runway model Juliana Meloche.

Toronto, ON, August 26, 2014 - Max Agency has recently welcomed new talent including future high fashion and runway model Juliana Meloche. I asked Juliana how she got started in the business and she had this to say, “I was approached by MAX Agency on the street. My family was always telling me to get into Modeling, because of my height and my looks, that it was something I should try. I didn’t really think about it until I was approached by MAX Agency. Honestly I’m really focused on school right now but MAX has made everything really easy.”

After being scouted on the streets of Toronto for Modeling and thinking about the approach for a while, Juliana decided to pursue the opportunity and apply through the MAX Agency website. I asked her what it was like in the beginning and she said “It was fairly easy. I went online with the card thing, the max business card, took a couple pictures of myself, filled out the online modeling application and they called me within a day and I made an appointment.”

What was your first appointment like and who did you meet?

“I met with Kamran first. I decided to get the whole package and we looked at our options and we agreed. The photo shoot was a lot of fun. It was a great experience and the people I was working with were great. It was my first time, they made it super easy and it was a lot of fun for me. Then we came in to look at our photos. The Toronto MAX Agency modeling agent helped us choose the photos for my composite cards. When I got my composite cards I thought they looked really good. The orientation was good and MAX Agency has made everything so easy for me. It was effortless.”

Juliana is a Toronto model but she will also be pursuing Toronto acting and was required to take the free acting class through The Talent Shop. Juliana is pursuing higher education and she had this to say about the introductory acting class, “I liked it. I did. I liked all of the people I worked with. Everyone was really nice. It was great to work with Andy. I learned a lot. I had never pictured myself doing acting before but I thought, it’s something I think I can do. I’m a Toronto model doing an Arts and Science degree thinking about majoring in Ethics, Society and Law.”

MAX Agency is really happy to have Juliana as on of their top models. Juliana definitely has a promising future with a great agency, “I am looking forward to seeing where this whole thing takes me. You guys have been so awesome. You’ve been great. Everyone I’ve worked with has been great.”

MAX Agency’s Bookers are currently looking for new Talent, Toronto Models and Actors! If you are interested we highly recommend visiting www.maxagency.com and filling out an application. Wishing MAX continued success in the industry we’re looking forward to future press releases featuring individual models and talent and projects and finding out more about MAX Agency Toronto!

How to use Google Classroom

Google Classroom Quick Start Guide.

Sunnyvale, CA, August 26, 2014 - Google launched “Google Classroom” service earlier this month for all of Google Apps for Education users. This is Netkiller’s quick start guide for Google Classroom. Google has not distributed a detailed end user’s guide yet.

To begin, visit your Google Apps Admin Console and turn “ON” Classroom.

If the service is ON, then you can access Classroom from your Gmail.

There are two different types of users of Google Classroom: teachers and students. The web interfaces for Teachers and Students look very similar; the only difference is that Teachers will be able to create new classes and manage them from their panel while Students can only join the classes.

Teachers View
Teachers access Classroom, through the Home menu. They can create a new class by clicking the + icon.

We’ve created a class named “Test” for this demo. When the class is created, teachers will be able to see the Announcement and Assignment menu.

In order to invite students to a newly created class, teachers can either click on the Student tab and click Invite button or give students the invitation code so they can log on join the class.

We created an Announcement for our class.

Now we can click on the Assignment button and begin entering content such as a description of the assignment and the due date, and you can also attach reference files.

Reference files can be chosen from your Google Drive, link, or video and Teachers can manage access privileges. In our demo, we selected “View only” for students.

Students View
This is the screen that students will see if they access Classroom from Gmail. Upon clicking the + icon, students will be asked to enter the invitation code. They can enter codes for each of the classes that they wish to join.

Now we have now joined a class. We can now view announcements and assignments for that class. When we click on assignments, we see a description of the assignment and attached files.

Students then can turn in their completed assignments by clicking the “Add” button to upload from their Google Drive, computer, or a link. They can also click the “Create” button to begin work on the assignment. After completion, they click on the “Turn In” button to submit their work.

After clicking the “Turn In” button, the student will see a popup window for confirmation. Students have to click “Turn In” one more time to finish submitting their assignments.

Teachers look again: Check students’ work

Now we are back to teacher mode. Teachers can see the of number of students who have turned in their assignments so far.

Teachers can click the assignment that they want to check to see names of students who turned in the assignment as well as a timestamp of when the assignment was submitted.

If the Teacher has to return the assignment to a student without a grade, the Teacher can click on the “Return” button.

When grading is done for an assignment, the Teacher can enter points against a perfect score that is established by the Teacher.

It’s very easy! Please contact Netkiller for more information.
