Some of these sources can help us so that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Google academy, hubspot, codeschool, are great places we can also grab materials from. If this introduces something we don’t have time to working with, or something which may inspire a different kind of learner. If you see anything out there which has some relevance, grab it and see what you can bring to the table.
If you find little snippets created that cannot be covered in the class, but the materials already exist, run those as small, one-shot deals
Brackets in the lab
Brackets will be put in the lab. Brackets runs for free. Sublime is roughly $50 per license. We cannot use a cost program when we could also have a free resource. Our hope is to have a cradle-to-grave system of consistent program usage in WEB technologies.
GRD142 seems to miss its pace and GRD241 finds many students falling flat.
GRD110 seems to have lots of issues with retention.
WEB140 seem to run into the perrenial problem with retention. Design students seem to split- both top and bottom tier students are graphic design students
Summer faculty will need to have a single day of the week. Any issues needed by Alison can be fixed by Cindy if needed
