OIT's Learn IT @ Lunch Series: Publishing Video to Duke Classes and Groups Using Warpwire

Edge Events - Wed, 03/18/2015 - 16:00
Wed, Mar 18, 2015: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Edge: Workshop Room

Presentation by Todd Stabley, Senior Media Engineer, and Steve Tobak, Senior Manager, OIT Media Technologies.

The next generation DukeStream publishing platform is here, and it's called Warpwire. This easy-to-use web based service allows you to upload a video or image from your computer or smart phone (up to 10GB per item) and then share that item - or the whole collection it belongs to - with just about any combination of NetID-based users and groups using simple links and/or embed code. Warpwire now includes a plugin for Sakai that makes publishing media there even more simple, and there are plans to create one for Wordpress as well. In this session we'll demo Warpwire, talk about our product roadmap, and give you a chance to ask questions.

The Learn IT @ Lunch series runs during the fall and spring academic semesters. It is designed to be an opportunity to learn about technology in a relaxed lunch environment.

  • Each session includes a presentation followed by a Q&A period.
  • All Duke students, staff and faculty are welcome to participate.
  • No pre-registration is required for our Learn IT @ Lunch series.
  • Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Lunch is not provided. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.

Digital Dickens Notes: Form and Formation

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 21:00
Wed, Mar 4, 2015: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Edge: Digital Studio

 

Dr. Anna Gibson (Duquesne University) will describe how her Digital Dickens Notes Project hopes to create an interactive and fluid edition of Charles Dickens’s working notes for his novels that can demonstrate and facilitate a mode of reading serial novel form with attention to process—to formation. The project is in its early stages of prototype development, beginning with the working notes to Our Mutual Friend. The talk will focus on the methodological rationale for this type of digital edition as a way of exploring novel form-in-process rather than form-as-structure. Project Site: http://www.dickensnotes.com Anna Gibson is assistant professor of English at Duquesne University, where she works on nineteenth-century British literature with a focus on novels of the Victorian period. She received her Ph.D. in English from Duke in 2014, where she was a scholar in the Duke Ph.D. Lab in Digital Knowledge. In addition to her work on the Digital Dickens Notes Project, she is currently working on a book manuscript about how Dickens, Eliot, and sensation fiction reshaped the sensory experience we recognize as a person.
