It starts again on Monday

Two days to chill and tomorrow, five more days chock-full of great sessions including ones on iBooks Author; MOOCs; FYC online; markup language, rhetoric, and composition; and two on WordPress–one for beginners and one that is more advanced.

Using a storyboard for analysis

As part of the “Concept in 90” project goals I set for myself, I wanted to do a sample storyboard. Rather than a planning device that acts like an outline, this storyboard would be at the end or near the end so that students could use it to analyze their project in-progress or to analyze […]

Day 2 (day 1 for me) at DMAC

This week and next I am blogging from Ohio State University and the Digital Media and Composition Institute. The photo below was taken by one of the participants who tried on my Google Glass for the first time. She scrolled thrown the cards, saw the “take a picture” option, tapped, and exclaimed “It did it!” […]
