What do you need to consider in planning and designing a website for a DH project meant as both a resource for the public and a vehicle for outreach and public input? What strategies can you employ in creating such a site?
We would like to explore and have a discussion about experimental ideas and best practices in creating multi-modal sites that have these goals.
What platforms work the best for particular objectives, and why? What web design tools and platforms are most effective for a public humanities DH project?
If you’re in the early planning stages of site design for a DH public humanities project, come discuss your ideas, your questions and your insights. We’ll work collaboratively on developing ideas for a ‘matrix’ of solutions that looks at the relative advantages of a variety of API, plug-ins and platforms.
