Session 2: links to find a project you love! For non-English language projects, try Crowdsourcing the world’s heritage.
Prompts for thinking about projects:
- How clear was the purpose of the site? How well was it reflected in the ‘call to action’ and other text?
- How easy was it to get started?
- Were the steps to complete the task clear?
- How enjoyable was the task?
- Did the reward (if any) feel appropriate?
- Looking at the site overall, does the project appear to be effective?
- What is the input content? What is the output content?
- What validation methods appear to have been used?
- Who is the probable audience and what motivates them to participate?
- How does the project let participants know they’re making a difference?
- Does the site support communication between participants?
- How was the site marketed to potential participants?
- Did the site anticipate your questions about the tasks?

I was awarded National Endowment for the Humanities Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Fellowship for the Polis Center‘s Institute on ‘‘Spatial Narrative and Deep Maps: Explorations in the Spatial Humanities’. In their words, “this two-week intensive institute brings leading scholars from around the world to explore how deep maps can support relevant issues in spatial humanities”.
A sneak preview of some of our prototyping work is available at Interface designs for deep maps: a presentation from #PolisNEH to #UCLADH. Some of the discussions about deep maps were captured in a post I wrote on Open Objects after the first week, ‘Halfway through ‘deep maps and spatial narratives’…‘ and a post on the project blog for the last day of the Institute, Catch the wind.
