Week 13–Final Project ideas

20 11 2007

The final project will be due in two weeks (in class presentations Dec 4-6). Before you begin, post your ideas and plans to the blog.

If you’re looking for ideas, consider current issues relating the Internet, the web, blogs, or other digital media. Consider some of the larger issues (and blog topics) we’ve discussed in class:

  • The use of online resources in education (the Gorman articles are a good starting point)
  • Copyright/Fair Use
  • Online journalism vs Main Stream Media (MSM)
  • Hypertext evaluation (how can one tell if a hypertext is any good?)
  • The Internet and thought (or problem-solving)
  • The Future of Reading (http://www.newsweek.com/id/70983)

Multimedia is not required (this is primarily a textual project), but if want to use any multimedia, use Public Domain or open-source (GPL, CC, etc) materials. My favorite source for such materials is the Internet Archive.
