end/line week 5 reflection

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 We’re finally approaching the final stretch for the initial prototype layouts. This week saw two upgrades: a list of aesthetic changes and information page changes from the group, and a few more skeletons to be fleshed out for the rest of the site. It’s really coming together and it’s nice to slowly see the initial product take form. I honestly just wish I had a bit more time to really sit down and learn a lot more about advanced development tips but unfortunately, end/line has a deadline.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The aesthetic changes involved a change of fonts. The paragraph and list elements have been changed to a bit more of a readable font (Merriweather Sans) and the header elements have been changed to a similar font to the logo (Space Mono). We chose to avoid using the font included in the logo because we didn’t want to have to deal with buying it. Google Fonts is an incredible repository of available fonts and they even have an easy way to reference them as URL based stylesheets to quickly integrate them.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The page changes saw the index page having an updated main copy via TL, small copy changes to the encoding example, and the example being shifted to the left to help mobile view options and alignment. The about page changes featured a few changes to some of the bios in their respective modals. The news page has now become the area where the blog lives: the posts have been migrated over, and eventually I’d like to integrate a scrollable link feature to keep the article titles up-top and the content below to clean things up.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Regarding the skeletons, I made a small change to the “upload” page for aesthetics, and skeletoned out the search, comparison, general encode, and settings pages. I now have to regroup with Brian and see what he needs to make the functions on the page work including the search and main poem pages. I also need to see if there’s a way to have alternate navbars or to include an element on the right for non-logged in users, and about blocking pages through the routing. We are going to reconvene on this Wednesday, but for now, the aesthetic changes are going to be pushed to the main site soon.

  • 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.
