Welcome to your blog for MCM0260: Cinematic Coding and Narrativity. Here's how it works. (I've cribbed the following from the Thursday section's excellent first post):
During the week your group is assigned to post to the blog, you will post a group entry by Sunday midnight. Your group must also post an identical entry to http://cinematiccodingandnarrativity.blogspot.com (the blog for the Thursday section).
Every week, after the post has gone up, each of you (not just the group in charge for the week) will respond to the post, with comments, thoughts, further questions etc. Use the "comment" function. Your responses need to go up by the Wednesday night. Respond on this blog only. The Thursday section members will have their own discussion on their blog. You are recommended to follow their blog but not required to.
See the calendar of deadlines below for post and response due dates.
The syllabus and our section agendas suggest one way of organizing the course. Your blog posts can suggest another. In other words, your blog posts can serve as a forum to raise questions that span various weeks of the syllabus, pose unusual connections, test hypotheses, get to the stuff we didn't have time for in section. Be creative, be informal! Post even when you don't absolutely have to! Don't think of the blog as a chore--if I were you I'd think of it like Facebook. Something to check and update whenever you need a distraction.
