This project reboots the Shakespeare CoLab (www.shakespearecolab.com) and integrates the website into a new Digital Editions and Web Publishing class.   The website will contain student-generated annotations for Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, potentially serving as an Open Educational Resource for classroom use.  The Digital Editions & Web Publishing class will teach students to use OxYgen editor to tag digital texts according to the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines.  Students will also learn to use WordPress (through Buffs Create) to display their XML editions in HTML using CSS for design.

Fireside Stories

Fireside Stories is a documentation of the work which members of the Collective to Advance Multimodal Participatory Publishing (CAMPP) produce at the end of a three year cycle in the ASSETT Innovation Incubator at the University of Colorado, Boulder. CAMPP’s mission promotes faculty and student curation, cultivation, co-creation, and publication of knowledge. Under this umbrella, members developed and published various projects that meet academic standards and are open and accessible to the community at large. These audio recordings contain first hand accounts from CAMPP and its project partners about their experiences throughout this period of development.
