See Radio Days for an example of the steps in a project like this
- Bloglines or GoogleReader
- Technorati or this blog’s blogroll
- Subscribe to 3-4 blogs that relate to this course
- RSS (RSS In Plain English)
- WordPress (next week)
- Examine blog design for usability
- Must have widgets: categories, links (blogroll), archives, “meta”
- GMT (-7) instead of (-8) — must annually adjust for DST!
- Subscribe to at least two podcasts that publish at least once/week
- Post to your blog – by Monday at 9 pm – the list of blogs and podcasts. I’ll make a directory.
- Look at this page — if your URL is wrong, send me an email!
- If you want to produce a “draft” podcast on a topic of personal interest, bring a recording of your voice (3-4 minutes) next week. There is no requirement that you to do this, however, as I’ll be providing voice and sound files. We’ll spend most of our time together becoming familiar with the software for editing sound. If you want to use your own laptop — bring it!
