end/line: week 3

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 During the last class, we have been asked to focus on our data management plan, another fundamental step for the development of our digital project. Indeed, end/line is an app where users can upload poems in plain text, encode them following TEI Guidelines and finally compare their own encoding with other users. So, we will deal with plain text, TEI XML, and user information data, connected with what we directly produce through our Commons blog and our Twitter account.

Last week, I wrote a post on our Commons blog explaining the approach to TEI we want to develop, offering our users the possibility to directly experience TEI by encoding. Both the post and my research for testers rely on the community of TEI people, and this is an extraordinary resource. TEI is indeed a consortium of people aiming to maintain a standard for the representation of texts in digital forms, and everybody is concerned about it: sunscribing to TEI listserv is a proof of the commitment of people, who propose changes in the code or in the attributes of TEI, ask help to other users about problems or difficulties they encountered, and propose collaboration to projects. For this reason, and after having asked Tom if this could be a good idea, I launched a call for participation in our testing through TEI Listserv.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 So far, the call reached a certain success: I received emails from people all around the world (Wisconsin, Madrid, Berlin, Oxford), interested to become end/line testers. I will probably send a reminder through TEI listserv during next week, to increase our testers.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
