Bottom line: don’t panic.

Read Before Class

Read this first:

Here is some historical context for why we offer a course like this in our public history MA program…

Do Before Class

In this course you are going to need to provide regular documentation of your work in progress. If you don’t already have a blog, create one at Blogger or WordPress and send me the URL.  It is also a good idea to sign up for a photo sharing account at Flickr or Picassa, so that you can upload screenshots, drawings, and photographs of your work, and then link to them in your blog.  You can also create a YouTube or Vimeo channel if you plan to make videos or screencasts of your work.  Consider putting Creative Commons licensing on your stuff (this is not a course requirement, however).

In Class

In class we are going to make sure that everyone is set up with Max 6, do a quick review of Max programming, then use MaKey MaKey and Makedo to build some alternate interfaces.
