This week, Dr. Kelly has asked me to complete the third puzzle pice:
In a very brief blog post, describe the audience for the final project that you have in mind and why you chose that audience.
Last semester, Dr. Leon emphasized that it is important to keep the audiences for digital projects in mind. For my project for Dr. Kelly’s course, I have a clear idea about who I’ll be addressing.
As I noted in earlier posts, I will be teaching an online American Women’s History course during the Fall semester. One of the major projects for the semester will be related to my A Woman of the Century site. For that reason, my primary audience for my project will be my students. In last week’s post, I wrote that I would be doing podcasts, but I meant to write screencasts. I look forward to creating them and hope that they will help my students work with the site and complete their assignments.
While my history students are my primary audience, my contributors are also an important audience for several parts of the project. While the non-student A Woman of the Century contributors will not be utilizing all of the screencasts that I will share with my students, I plan to add most of the screencasts to the site. Some contributors have asked for detailed instructions about creating item records and utilizing various research sources, and the screencasts will be helpful to them.
