end/line week 6 reflection

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 This week was a bit of a rush to the end in terms of making sure Brian had everything he needed to start making all of the connections on the backend. A few pages had to be cleaned up, some information had to be added, and results pages had to be skeletoned out so they would display correctly once the application was in use. Hopefully by next week we can start testing the application amongst ourselves, make the necessary changes we need to make, and push a better app for the second round when we request our beta testers to test the app.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The first of the changes to the platform was from login and sign-up modals, to individual pages. Brian mentioned it would be an easier transition so I implemented a minimalist design for the pages themselves, extremely similar to what hypothes.is uses. Along with other aesthetic changes, the news page now has a jumper feature on the top of the page so you can quickly scroll to any story featured. An FAQ page has been fleshed out with test questions and test answers so that anyone can commit directly to the repo to fill those in. The glyphicons have been corrected, with BH’s direction I was able to change the navbar to two different views, and I added a partnership section on the home page.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 However, the most important changes I made were the items added to the item pages and search page. This is so that Brian has a base to work off of when he starts making the connections. The actual item pages (currently) are designed to feature radio buttons to compare versions and feature title and author data for each iteration. Search results feature title, author, and date. One of the more challenging aspects of this was making sure I was working within Bootstrap’s column system while still making sure it was aesthetically pleasing and workable on mobile.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Otherwise, I can’t wait for Brian to finish because I’m really excited to see this thing work. However, I think I can hold off on my anticipation because I really needed this short break right now (hah!)

  • 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.
