* Note:I still need to see everyone’s introductions on their blogs — specifically: grade, major/minor, technical skills and web/creative experience, and enrollment rationale.
(I need this info in order to arrange groups. Please post ASAP.) note: weekly blog entries normally due Wednesday evening;
suggest writing / posting first entry before Thurs class (when you have time).
Every student will create and maintain a blog throughout the semester, beginning week 2 and due each Wednesday except when noted (e.g. project weeks). Entries are informal and ungraded, except for credit. This is an on-going “Research Journal, ” testing ideas and compiling “materials” for the projects: associative links and media, questions and hypotheses; observations and insights—particularly connections between media within and outside of class.
Elaborating upon this, “orientation” and specific suggestions about blogging below.
Not official yet, but soon; feel free to peruse now and to let me which films you’ve seen in a comment below… or, in your first blog entry. (More about blogging, including tips and prompts/Qs, coming soon.)
