Our work doesn't speak for itself, says Austin Kleon. In this project, you'll work with your book project teams to create the story of your team's DPS App or Atlas project. Your case study eventually should be presented (and presentable) in multimedia formats including text, audio, video, and other forms of interactive media. Your audience for this project will be book publishers, industry specialists, Clemson faculty, students, and staff, and the wider public. Each collaborative group will be responsible for producing a case study documenting its component of the larger project and the results.
Because both platforms are new technologies designed to solve a real world problems, you'll need to do some background research on the applications and how they may have been used by others (including interviews). Your finished case study will tell the story of how you approached these problems or challenges and the steps along the way and your decisions as you addressed them. There should be two main components of the finished case study: 1) ~5-minute video; 2) print- and web-based document with visual, aural, and animated content embedded in text. Together, the case study components will provide background information on the problem or challenge, a description of the current challenge and your goals, a detailed overview (supported by visual content and verbal content) of the steps taken to address the challenge or achieve the goal, and then a discussion of how well your solution has worked. You'll be asked to complete a Collaborative Project Evaluation Form at the end of the project. (Collaborative; 20% of course grade.)
