end/line: week 5

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Last week, I focused mainly on the draft of the invitation letter we will send to the beta testers of end/line with the information about the date and the modalities of the test. This task is not as simple as it could appear, because it requested to consider multiple and different aspects of the test planning.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 I created a list of issues and then I discussed them with Michael and Tom, and they helped me to better define our test. First of all, we have to consider that the testers come from all over the world, so we have to deal with different time zones: this could be a problem, if we wanted them to do the test all at the same time. To solve this first issue, we decided to ask them to work autonomously, so the time zones will not affect their participation.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 A second issue was related to the form of assistance we will offer them during the test. We have considered different options, such as a help desk through e-mail or also through other, more interactive support such as a Google Hangout, through which they could directly talk with a member of the team to solve problems or issues.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Finally, we also decided to provide them some useful tools for their feedbacks. Being this the most relevant information we need to collect from them, and considering that they have voluntarily accepted to spend some time for us, we will provide them some forms with a series of different questions to be answered and also space for comments. In this way, we can also collect more reliable and comparable data to usefully employ for the building of end/line.

  • 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.
