VISUAL EXPLORATION
Post two pictures on your blog, both relating to the topic of your final project:
* one you have taken yourself
* one you have found somewhere (a historical picture, a family picture, etc). Make sure that you have permission to post the pictures you have “found” and reference their source or origin properly. Here are is a list of links for public domain or creative-sommons licensed content:
Choose meaningful pictures and write a short paragraph each about how they relate to your topic.
Post both pictures and your notes on your blog by Wednesday, March 24, at noon.

For Wednesday and TO DO

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Your midterm exam is posted below; also the pictures for question #2.

Please make sure you complete the readings marked “Banks Ch. 4” for Wednesday. Also, please read the following (short) articles on copyright and creative commons:

http://www.lib.umn.edu/copyright/fairuse.phtml

If you haven’t done so yet, please finish your blog entry about your final project idea. It should be 2+ paragraphs, describing your topic and your possible methodology in as much detail as possible. Please, also add the name of your collaborator, if you have one.
(Have a look at my comments to your earlier posts on the final project, maybe they will be helpful.)

One more TO DO:
I would like to change the way I communicate with you — away from relying on Blackboard (and the qc email addresses) by using the class blog and email addresses of your choice. For that, please do the following:
* sign in to the dashboard of your blog
* click on your name in the upper right corner
* under “contact info”, find your email address. If it’s not the one you would like me to use please change it. (wordpress will send a confirmation email to the new email address, so make sure to find that email and to click on the link listed there)
* stay signed in to your blog. go to our main class blog and add yourself as a user to the blog (see the link on the top of the left sidebar)
After all of you have signed on to the class blog, I will start sending emails through wordpress. Thank you!
