Before your next class :
1. Online discussion
Log onto your Blackboard / eLearning space for ICC 523.
Look under the DISCUSSIONS tab in the left hand column, and follow instructions to contribute to the Literacy: Reading on the net threaded discussion.
Please create threads for your own original comments/contributions that you should have written for assignment 1. You should also add your own comments as responses to at least two other students' threads (IOW you are commenting on the same aspect of the article as the other student). Read what others have written and return to the discussion several times to read what has been added and contribute more to the discussion.
We will be using several different discussion formats this semester.
2. Begin planning project
- Begin to plan ideas for your own project (see Project 1). What information do you want to present? Keep it simple. Begin to gather your materials and bring photos to class for scanning or editing. This is just to get you thinking at this point. We'll have much more time to work on this in class and at home.
Keep playing with Web page creation to get used to web editing.
A tutorial on character code issues.
Dan's Mail Format Site: Body: Character Sets.
8-bit vs. 7-bit (ASCII character set, ASCII FAQ).
Unicode - The Unicode home page. Be sure to look at code charts with sample glyphs.
- Send an email message to yourself with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org using at least one word that requires accented letters (évidemment). Check the email headers if you can to see what character set and encoding you are using. If you can't find the email headers (after a reasonable search and a visit to "help", that's ok.
You may need to examine the preferences/options in your email software to find out how to make this work, though most email software these days will not require any changes in preferences. Note: If you can't get this to work, that too is part of the learning experience. Let me know what you tried in that case. But it will probably work just fine.
- Send a second email message to your instructor with an attached zip file containing a folder with files that you have zipped using either the built-in archiving or a program such as 7-zip. You want to put several files into a single zip file for easy transport.
4. Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia
Examine the Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia listed in the syllabus. Does your school have a clear policy? Be prepared to discuss this next week.
