end/line week 3

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Thankfully, it looks like this project is moving along pretty well. We now have our data management plan in place, and it looks like both the community management and development ends are in the trenches when it comes to the work being done. We’ve also all adapted pretty well to the workflow with Slack and Trello. This week’s main focus is on community management, specifically with outreach and publicity. This definitely going to be big for us because we need to make sure that we maintain our relationship with the TEI, and make sure all our deliverables are on time for the first testing phase.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Related to that, I initially came off to a bit of a frazzled start with the frontend development, but eventually got my bearings. After speaking with Brian about what the site should be based out of, he initially suggested Angular because of its versatility. Unfortunately, I ran into a bit of a rough patch with Angular, so we moved to a combination of Bootstrap and EJS for creating templates. So far it has been going quite well, and I’m currently trying to flesh pages out from the initial wireframe I submitted to the group based on our drawings. That wireframe and comments can be found here.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 For now, I’m going to continue to flesh out the pages and work on a few ideas for style on the page. This isn’t necessarily layout style, but fonts, buttons, menus, etc. That is probably going to be a big subject for the next time we meet in class on Wednesday. Until then, I still have a lot of tutorials to burn through, and a lot of files to play with.

  • 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.
