A recommended video from a former student, here's a great analysis of an outstanding speaker, Steve Jobs:
Now some more examples to study:
Finish the textbook readings before the discussion starting on Monday at noon.
Finish the supplementary readings before the discussion begins on Monday. These and lots more are also available on the Handouts page.
This Week's Discussion
Topics to include in this week's Blackboard discussion:
Discussion leaders: Start the conversations by noon on Monday. Everyone else: Get involved right away, but feel free to continue dropping in to read and respond to new posts throughout the week. Everyone is required to participate in these discussions by posting useful responses to the student leaders' prompts, or at least in response to other comments in the discussion forum. Your participation level - even when not leading discussions - strongly affects your semester grade, so get fully engaged every week!
Bonus opportunity: A link to your Website (team or individual project) is due to your peer-reviewer(s) this Wednesday by class - earlier is better! Revised version due to Blackboard by Sunday at 5:00pm.
Due weeks 14 and 15: Presentation. We'll enjoy these during the last two weeks of class, some in person (I'll ask for volunteers), and the rest via online workshops.
After completing each assignment, make sure to back it up (I recommend using a low-cost USB flash device like this or a Web service like Dropbox) before you turn it in or send it to your peer-review partner. Even if you are late creating a project, you can often avoid getting zero points for that assignment by completing it and turning it in to Blackboard late. Be aware that turning in late projects could harm your peer-review partner's score, as well, so be thoughtful.
Paste the link to your website into the Submission text filed of the appropriate Blackboard Assignment slot only after you address your peer-review partner's suggestions.
Bonus opportunity: (not required) Peer-review your
partner's progress on the
to help develop their project, and earn up to +4 bonus points! When you have completed your responses, turn in the peer-review that
you wrote for the project you reviewed in the appropriate Blackboard
assignment slot ("Website Peer Review").
Also, take full advantage of the Blackboard Discussion Board's "Adding Awesome to Your Website"
forum. Can't figure out how to make things work? Ask your partners or post
