177 Finals Update

Dear HRS 177 Students,

As you already know you have to upload three items related to finals:

1. Compile all the blogs you have written during the quarter and organize them into one document and save as a pdf. Create and place a title page (Make sure to identify with your name, major, date, class, professor) at the front and a short summary at the end. Naming convention: LAST_F_177_Final.pdf (Jane Doe would be: DOE_J_177_Final.pdf)

To upload the blog compilation: 
a. Create a new blog entry.

b. Title it: Final Blog Compilation.

c. Write a sentence presenting your final blog compilation. Select that sentence and click on the Link icon to upload and link the pdf file.

d. Click on Browse Server.

e. Upload the file.

f. Insert the file.

g. As Topic select: Final Blog Compilation.

2. Work with your group to edit the FINAL Turing document according to the feedback you receive. Remember that and identify who is in charge of collecting and pulling all materials into one document and save as a pdf. Naming convention: TURING_morphogenesis / TURING_AI etc.

Just like in the Midterm presentation. Make sure to clearly identify each author / contributor and add yourself. Remember to create a title page, an index page for  all the content with the students names, the content pages with each author/topic's references and citations. Caution: Avoid using google docs for ppt as sometimes it does strange formatting that can cause confusion.

3. Download, print, sign, scan and upload the release form if you are OK to have your part of the document made public (published) on the Turing website we are now working on. Scan the signed release form and upload it to a new blog. Choose Release Form as topic.

June 6th – email all of the above in draft form for me to review and give you feedback.
June 13th final versions of Blog Compilation, Turing Group Colaboration Presentation and Release Form are due.

Note: - There is a distinction between works cited and bibliography. Citations are references to offline and online sources that directly support your text and included inline with the text, surrounded by parentheses. Use a citation when you take an idea directly from another author (even if you rephrase it) or when you quote directly from an author. See http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/02/ for guidelines on how to do this properly. Bibliography is a list of works you consulted for background information, but aren’t necessarily cited directly in your text.
