Planning & Building Digital Projects – Digital Scholars’ Workshop Series
January 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Update: The slides from this session are now available for download.
This session will give an introduction to planning a digital research project, and is aimed at those considering the creation of a digital project, either small or large, as part of their research or learning.
Using an existing database project as an example, we will look at the various stages in project design & development, along with tools you can use to support them.
Areas to be covered include ways to:
- identify your project requirements,
- work with your data,
- approach planning the look and feel of the project’s interface,
- think about your technology choices, and
- evaluate your decisions by testing with users.
We will look at a number of tools that have proved useful over the course of my work on a wide variety of digital projects.
The session will be delivered by David Kelly, Digital Humanities Manager at the Moore Institute.
About the Workshop Series
Developing skills with digital technologies can be a challenge for researchers interested in digital and open scholarship.
To help, the Library, in partnership with the Moore Institute, presents a series of informal workshops to share practice-based expertise, know-how, and experience in technologies and methods, that will enhance your experience of newer forms of scholarship.
