A GREAT overview of how to create low-fuss videos! This is a discussion from two "Google Webmasters" on how they make educational videos for the Google community--but the tips apply to anyone!

Watch live on Hangouts On Air!  Critical Code Studies is in its broadest terms the "extra-functional significance of computer code." It takes as a starting point that computer code (HTML, Java, Python, binary, etc) is not objective or neutral, but that, since it is created within a social system by humans, it is subject to critical reading along the lines of race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and ethnicity. Is there such a thing, for example, as a feminist code or postcolonial code? In thinking through these ideas, critical code studies takes seriously the notion of code as a very different "text" than is commonly the subject of these analyses, and explores this space between machine reading and human reading of code.

This DASH event will bring together members of the campus community invested in the stakes of code and coding. It will feature:
Arvid Nelsen, Head of Library Collections, Charles Babbage Institute
Chris Lindgren, PhD Candidate, Writing Studies
Alison Link, Academic Technologist, Extension
Jeff Kerzner, Masters Student, Computer Science

We hope you'll join us for what promises to be a fascinating conversation!  For more information, please visit: https://www.lib.umn.edu/digital/dash/events

Technology Learning for Extension Staff
Introduction
"Quick Bytes" are bite-sized introductions to a wide variety of today's technology. A new Quick Byte unit will be posted each Thursday. You will finish each quick and fun unit having seen each technology with your own eyes, learned some potential uses for it, and knowing where to get more information. Often there will be an activity to allow for hands-on exploration. Comments and discussion are strongly encouraged!
