Welcome to “Creating Digital Humanities Projects for the Mobile Environment”
Faculty from The Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver––John Barber, Brenda Grell, Dene Grigar, Will Luers, Brett Oppegaard, and Nicholas Schiller; Greg Philbrook, Tech Support.
Scope of Course
A growing area of interest in the digital humanities is the mobile environment, especially projects that take advantage of the affordances of smart phones and tablets. This course, derived from the Mobile Tech Research Initiative of The Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver is aimed at assisting participants to:
1) conceptualize the space and special features of mobile devices; 2) develop the architecture, design, and multimedia content production for a mobile project; and 3) understand the coding and programming requirements for mobile devices. By the end of the course, participants will have the information they need for creating projects for the mobile environment and will have completed steps toward the development of their own projects.
