Here are guidelines for completing your Tool Review and Project Review assignments for Jennifer Drouin’s Spring 2015 class.
Tool Review: Review an established or an emerging DH tool for its usability, functions, pros and cons versus comparable tools if any, reliability, and foreseeable applications. See DiRT Directory: Digital Research Tools for a list of tools organized by category from which you may choose. You may also choose a tool not listed there. Verify your selection with me before beginning the assignment.
Follow this Sample Tool Review 2015 format guide.
Post your review as a Page (not a Post) on the course website before the beginning of class on February 10th and be prepared to present it in class. When creating and saving your Page, make sure to select “Tool Reviews” as the Parent under Page Attributes; this will ensure that your page is created in the appropriate part of the WordPress site.
