The past week has been very productive for the (formerly known as) Atlas team, despite some big changes our group has faced.

We started out the semester intending to publish a multi-platform book using O'Reilly's new browser-based publishing tool Atlas. We learned last week that Atlas would soon be discontinued, so we have shifted our focus.

This week we determined some major section headings for our book, decided on a style for designing our case study, and we're in the midst of polishing content for inclusion in the book.

Nick's @ Nine (content team) will be focusing on a few things from here on out:

The Atlas team spent last week and this week trying to get back in the swing of things after Spring Break. Since the semester is quickly coming to an end, we are trying to kick things into high gear and really make some progress on this project.

One large announcement: the Atlas team will no longer be using Atlas (ironic, I know). Unfortunately, O'Reilly Media has decided to discontinue Atlas in a few short months, and this has affected our access to the site. Instead of spending time trying to learn an application that will soon cease to exist, we're re-directing our efforts.

This week the Atlas team continued to make progress on the collaborative project. I was able to show the team the Atlas interface and how to create a new file, and this helped everyone get a better sense of what the program really does.

The design team has conducted some research on the Atlas application that will be included in our case study. Now, they're focusing their attention on the Atlas interface and working with CSS style sheets and HTML coding so that we can create a well-designed book.

We've decided to meet outside of class again right after Spring Break so that we can check in on our progress.

The content team is still focusing on conducting interviews with Clemson faculty and staff who are involved with Writing Across the Curriculum. They will also be curating content from several sources provided by Dr. Blakesley for pieces that we can include in our final book.

Despite the winter weather this week, the Atlas team managed to really get started on the collaborative project. The entire team met at Nick's on Wednesday to talk about the project, determine responsibilities for the different parts of it, and map out a plan for getting it done.

Dr. Blakesely shared Atlas log-in information with the team, so we can really start figuring out how the program works. Unfortunately, we're finding it isn't the most user-friendly interface, so we're hoping to do some more digging to determine how it works.

This week was abbreviated because of the weather, and since class was cancelled Tuesday, the Atlas design team didn't have a whole of time to make headway on the collaborative project.

During class, the team determined that it'd be easiest for our group to meet up outside of class time, so we've set our first group meeting for next Wednesday at 6PM at Nick's. During this time, we'll try to make a plan for the rest of our project, focusing on mapping out responsibilities and deadlines for the case study portion. We'll rely on the design team to help us shape the formatting and multimodal aspects of both the Atlas book and the case study, while the content team focuses on the, well, content.

Stay tuned!
