Wisconsin Public Radio has done a story on this class. Click below for the story:
We are going to make posts due Sunday night as to allow people to include weekend progress on their posts. Make sure to be thorough about your progress for the week and the things left to be done. Also again add lots of pictures. Many of you did a great job using pictures to showcase your work. This is a great way to accomplish two things at once.
For class on the morning of Friday December 13th please have a pdf file that includes these items in a poster format
Name of the Project
- Include a link to the project page on the class website
- What the project is intended to do. (One Sentence.)
- Images from other projects/designs/ideas that motivated you to undertake this project.
- Cite where they came from.
Project Description (Bullet Point List)
- Why you felt this was important to design
- Why is your project unique
- Examples of how your project could be used
- Where this project could go in the future
Images of the Final Project
- Make them nice
Remember posts are going to be due Sunday this week, but they need to be extra good. That means you should make sure you have more than one image and an extensive description of your progress this week.
Also remember to TAG YOUR POSTS with your project name.
The website was using UTC for the timestamp for posts. The time settings have been updated for central time.
To log into the website you need to have a campus IP. If you are off-campus you can use VPN to obtain a campus IP. Here are instructions on how to do so: http://www.doit.wisc.edu/network/vpn/
For the weekly update posts, please address the following questions:
- What did you do this week? [Include image(s)]
- Describe the problems you encountered
- Describe the successes you had
- Are you on schedule?
- What do you plan to do next week?
By midnight tonight, you should have two project posts. The first post is a description of your project, and the second post should be a status/progress report. Be sure to tag your posts in the Projects category. I will make a new category for your project after your first post.
Also, Justin Anderson from WARF will be in class in Tuesday. Be sure to think through any questions about intellectual property you would like to ask him.
