Welcome to that moment of transition between modules. This week, we’re moving out of digitization and into metadata. Most importantly, for many of you, however, is that we will be working on our first assignment, “Trying Things Out,” this week.
In light of this being our first real assignment, where a number of moving parts and disparate elements are coming together, I’ve prepared a detailed screencast for you this week, to get you started on your minicollections. The assignment will use aspects of platform knowledge, digitization skills and metadata. If this makes you nervous, don’t fear! We are, as the assignment indicates, trying things out. Watch the screencast – perhaps while you begin your preliminary work on your assignment! -, read over the guidelines, peruse the resources and give it your best shot. All materials are available on Learn@UW, with more detailed information there.
Looking forward to what you come up with, everyone. Good luck, and have a great week!
