Designing the Digital Knowledge Gateway
This seminar will offer advanced students with an opportunity to explore and shape the implementation of the UT Knowledge Gateway (see http://gateway.utexas.edu ), a major new initiative aimed at sharing great intellectual and cultural treasures of The University of Texas with all the residents of the state.
The seminar will run throughout the summer (May-August), meeting weekly to explore and discuss key issues in the design and implementation of tools, resources and techniques that can make the Knowledge Gateway vision a reality. We will explore the process of developing such a Gateway and seek answers to questions of design, development, implementation and management of such a resource. Students will be required to tackle projects on key aspects of the Gateway, either individually or in teams, and present the final results to the university community at the end of the semester.
