end/line week 4 reflection

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 After plenty of tutorial time and playing around, I am getting the swing of the EJS integration with the bootstrap pages I’m creating. The focus for this week was two things – the first was taking what I already fleshed out in bootstrap, and putting it into an EJS/Express/Node environment. After a recommendation from Brian and fiddling around with the partials and pages, I was able to get the first part of what I did running. The second focus for this week was having the page up by Sunday at least partially fleshed out. After getting the copy, sample encodings, bios, and logo from the group, I began creating the information pages.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The about page features a one-off paragraph, our logo, and our group members. There’s an FAQ section I currently have commented down in the EJS HTML, but it won’t go live until we flesh out the questions. The logo sits right aligned currently with the text, and each group member has their own personal modal. We will worry about personal customizations with these modals later. For now, they just have the name, role, and biography provided.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The news page is customized like the regular 2 column portfolio style featured on the index page. Each row features two of the news stories in reverse chronological order. Each new news story will have to be added manually, or eventually we can write a script to handle the additions that draw from the blog on the commons. As for the contact page, it’s a quick message that features our email and twitter account.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Two of the larger items that had to be fleshed out from scratch were the terms of service and the privacy policy. These are important because we need to remove ourselves from any liability coming from the platform. This is a web app, not an information page. Both of them were initially drawn from Hypothesis’ and modified to fit out platform. After they were both checked out by the group, they are now stuck on the bottom as footer items, and as a notification in the sign-up modal.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 I’m feeling much better about this project now that we have something up and running (even if it’s just information). The next steps for me are not only playing around with the styles upon the group’s recommendations, but also creating skeletons of the user pages as well. The non logged-in views have been created – now it’s time to create the pages for the actual platform.

  • 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.
