March 2 – Collecting and Presenting the Past (or Present) Digitally

In class: Flash presentations

Due Before Class: Blog Reflection

Choose one of the project/s below or your own, and consider the following questions in a reflection post on our class blog and posted the evening before we meet. Include in your reflection on the digital project responses to the following: What need or opportunity motivated the creation of the digital archive or collection? Who is the intended audience, and what technical or design choices make that audience explicit? What is the relationship between the creator of the archive project and the materials? What are the technologies used? What skills would you need to develop a similar project? What could future projects learn from this example?

Or another of your choosing with instructor approval.
