Be an Expert Guest Judge for my upcoming ugrad class Google Glass Challenge?

Be an Expert Guest Judge for my upcoming ugrad class Google Glass Challenge?

I am currently teaching a literary digital humanities writing course at Duke called Augmenting Realities. This Wednesday, I am surprising my students with a Google Glass Challenge: they will be asked to use all of their learned knowledge about literary media forms and digital humanities scholarship and to combine that with Google Glass technology to come up with a literary Google Glass app. The students (there are only 11) along with myself and two invited professors from different fields, will be responsible for coming up with an app and presenting a proposal for that app (they'll only have 30-45 minutes to do this) using a prescribed 6 presentation slides that will answer the basic what-how-why questions. I am looking for several 'expert judges' willing to review the slides and 'vote' on a winner. My ugrads would be thrilled. Might any of you be willing to volunteer as a guest judge?

I will post our proposals and results here when the Challenge is complete!

Thank you,
Amanda Starling Gould

Caitlin, this is great! If you'll send me a direct message with your email address, I'll send you judging details. I'd love to hear more about your class, too. Do you have a website or syllabus you can share?

Thanks!

Amanda,

I would be happy to participate. Will the evaluation and voting be real time or asynchronous?

Cheers,

Thank you for your generous praise and willingness to join us, Maureen. Voting will be asynchronous to allow flexibility for the expert guest judges. If you'll send me a direct message with your email, I'll send you details. Thanks!
