ThatCamp Philly: Lowering Barriers To Sharing Digital Humanities Content

One of the most interesting discussions at ThatCamp Philly was the one on lowering barriers to sharing digital humanities content. This was a very wide ranging discussion as seen by my notes below.
  • Lot of discussion of internal conflicts over being "open"
  • Some discussion of accessibility issues with flash.
  • Different populations use different devices. If you have high school students with smart phones, you need your stuff to work for them.
  • I chose PBWorks for my class wikis because of how nice the look on phones/tablets.
  • Tenure committees are more impressed by new stuff than continuing work on old stuff.
  • Have to get over fear of sharing.
