Week 1 – Monday

Details on our first night together!

Wednesday Lab (preliminary and high-level overview – not final!)

Lab attendance is required this week.

  • Create student blogs using Word Press ; please use your UWNetID as your login/account name if it is available. That will make your WordPress URL <uwnetid.wordpress.com>
  • Create an initial blog post, 200-300 words, on how you use digital media in your life everyday. Categorize the blog post “assignment”
  • Mail e-mail the blog URL (link) to me at kegill – at – uw (this is shorthand for the e-mail address!) before 6.20 pm.
