end/line: the last weeks

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The choice to separate community management and technical developement of end/line has been very useful: in this way, these two aspects – both fundamental – worked in parallel, reaching their goals.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The technical developement team did an excellent job in the last weeks: both Brian and Greg contributed to build an app that could now be defined as reliable. Tom was able to take advantage of the feedback we received from our first testers to modify the homepage layout in order to better explain the sense of end/line.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The relevance of feedback is indeed fundamental, in this moment: every feedback helps us to improve the app’s flaws. I managed three different sessions of testing during the last weeks: I chose to divide the testers in three different groups, and to set up three tests. Each group was allowed to test the app for one week, and then to release the feedback.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Being the great part of the testers members of academia, we already knew that this period of the year was not the best for them. Anyway, we received new feedbacks from them.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The presentation of end/line will take place tomorrow, so I am now reviewing my part. I will describe how we created and managed our community of potential users: I will briefly describe how we contacted them, the process that allowed us to find more than 20 people interested in testing the app, and the feedbacks we already received from them.

  • 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.
