This is a brief outline of what we will be doing with the project. Items are subject to change as we further develop the project.
Meeting at SXSW, 2pm;
Over the break, review the SXSW schedule and our site. You must complete at least one preview that include interviews with participants and one “Where Are They Now?” profile by the first meeting of the semester. You will be assigned sections from which to select your previews and names of past participants. I will give you access to our site, and you will be able to begin posting content in January. We can address any questions you have about these profiles during the first Skype on Jan. 17.
Start your own preliminary schedule.
You will also need to review our site and be prepared to make recommendations for any new items or coverage sxtxstate.com. Consider other features and elements you want to recommend.
In addition, work on your social presence over the break. More than what you shouldn’t do, what should you do to improve your social presence.
6:30pm Skype – you will receive information about how to maximize the efficiency of our Skype meetings.
