For All Your Capstone Thoughts and Drafts

Category Pitches s24

Each student is to compose ONE blog post on the Cap Stones course blog in which they pitch THREE possible semester-long topic ideas from these four potential topic areas:

* one that re-envisions in significant ways a previous COM or COM-adjacent class project
* one that looks toward your possible future career and/or graduate educational journey that will showcase skills and approaches necessary for a job or graduate school admissions
* one that engages your personal/creative life in some way
* one that is just so out there that you could never imagine that it would be approved in any possible way but who cares you’re only in school for a few more months and this would just be so much fun I want to propose it anyway so I’m gonna go for it and see what happens

Each individual pitch must adhere to the following guidelines:

* no more than 250 words
* explains the project, why you’d be interested in completing it, and how it would challenge you in new ways
mentions which hardware and/or software you’d need to complete it
* quantifies the scope — that is, how many podcast episodes for how many minutes, how many photos, length of videos, etc.
* embeds or links to an example that is similar to the kind of thing you are thinking about

Required Elements
Each pitch post must contain each of the following elements of effective blogging (modeled on the exceptional posts over at A List Apart and The Marginalian):

* a meaningful title
* clear and concise lead (that is, first sentence or two or quote) with larger font than the rest of the body text or bolded font
* appropriate placement of headings and subheadings
* appropriate use of concise and well-written sentences that make up concise paragraphs
* appropriate use of bolded text to highlight key ideas
* appropriate use of links
* appropriate use of block quotes for any extended quotations
* appropriate use of any author names
* appropriate Categories and Tags
–> choose the category Pitches 2024
* accessibility features, such as ALT text, title, and captions

Blog posts are designs that communicate important information. They should not appear as uninterrupted single-paragraph text. Take care with them. Check your grammar and spelling. Place links and multimedia wisely.

Remember, you must have prior experience with the technologies and genres associated with your chosen project.
