Week 6-Wikipedia and Creative Commons License

In regards to using creative commons or public domain for our project, at first we were thinking we would like to have it as public domain, but we would have to discuss it with the James Monroe Museum because we would be posting our project on their site and they have their own copyrights set in place already. Then we decided we would like to use attribution, so people would just have to mention that they got the information from us. It would be open to sharing pretty easily, but we would also get a bit of credit.

The Wikipedia tabs that display the changes over time and the details of who edited it and when is very interesting. I was not aware that such elements even existed on the site, or that it had a unique ability to recall to pages at a certain time. Its a very helpful way to see the creative process with each page and how the information displayed has evolved. These are just extra reasons why Wikipedia impresses me.

Week 5-Contracts Revised

In answering some more of the issues we would potentially have, we have found some solutions. In regards to the number of artifacts, we will start off with five and potentially grow to eight once we talk to the James Monroe Museum and can more accurately determine how long the 360 and video process will take. We plan to use Google for the 360 walkthrough and plan to get the camera from the HCC.

Week 4- Contracts

It seems like our biggest issue with the contract is going to be getting the physical 360 camera, figuring out what software we are going to us the camera through, and managing our time through the editing phase. In order to help manage our time, we have broken down the a timeline from which we want everything to be done by that seems pretty reasonable and realistic. Another issue is figuring out what artifacts we want to video and how many. This is really just a matter of going to the museum and seeing which ones we can do, and playing by ear how many we can get done.
