1. Project Description

Overview

This assessment task will involve the content development of your own personal blog. The idea is to facilitate a practice of self-documentation using web technologies and digital tools that will assist in self-reflection and the cycle of creative development.

You will only be assessed on the content you develop in the blog as the technical development will be assessed in the Digital Media subject. You will use this blog to document your creative development work throughout the Unit, and you may add any other material you choose to populate the site with rich and engaging content. You can write personal journal-type entries, or document your research for the Unit, add images, videos and links to other content on the Internet.

Don't be precious about what you put on the blog - work in development, unfinished ideas and concepts - these are all elements that you would document in a visual journal, so you can develop a similar practice here.

Some of the other assessment tasks will require that they are submitted as posts or static pages on the blog.

Something interesting to consider is the difference between an analogue visual journal and a blog - what is open to public access? what is closed & too personal to put on a blog? Are there issues of ethics and intellectual property, and keeping your developmental work private until a project is complete? it's up to you to decide what content goes on the blog and what content goes in your hard-copy visual journal.

 

2. Requirements

Content Development

Minimum of 30 blog posts (not including posts for other assessment tasks) using Tagging and Categories to enable different access points for your bog content

Content can include images and links to video objects on Youtube and Vimeo.

Content should mostly be your own, but you can link to other people's content that interests you, or that inspires you. Just make sure that the work of others is obviously attributed to them.

You are encouraged to comment on your classmates' blogs also to build up a "community of practice". Regular communication with each other through the blogs creates links and builds your web profile.

 

3. Specifications

 

Work will be assessed on your blog so it is important to include all images and media in the blog entry, and to properly reference your content.

 

4. References
