Weblogs and Wikis BootCamp2013

Complete tasks from Week 1 before class time on Wednesday. You're welcome and encouraged to go on to Week 2 at any time.

Week 1

Week Two: Starts Weds 23 Jan

Week Two is about RSS, CC and IP, customizing your weblog further, and practicing embedding media into blog posts - because we're all about multimodality now.


Creative Commons and Intellectual Property

Thanks to ds106
Read up on and write a post on copyright and the CC movement. Do the research first. Look into Creative Commons, and intellectual property (IP). The Missing Manual also has some information on copyright on the web, placing copyright notices on your weblog, and asking permission to post - which should be part of your research. Then write up a blog post in which you share your findings, linking to the resources you found most useful, and annotating those links. End this post by considering how you'll be licensing your work for this class, and why you made that choice. This post is due by midnight Thursday so others have time to read and comment. Friday and Saturday, then, visit the posts of others, comment - extend - develop - compare those that strike you as useful / significant / interesting.

Refine your weblog and develop a workflow

  • Continue visiting and replying to the posts of other in the class.

A summary

By Sunday midnight, post a reflection on these two weeks of Bootcamp set up. Refer to the HeuristicForWeeklySummaries as a guide. Link to your work for the last two weeks. (I'm not considering your work with BootCamp2013 complete until materials are linked.) Categorize this post under the appropriate category on your blog (Weekly Reflections or something similar).

You can post your summary earlier, of course, once you've completed the bootcamp activities and had a chance to review what others are doing, gleam what you can, and comment here and there.
