ADV3551 Online Class for Thurs Sept 10

You should have received an email notifying you that I have shared a Google Drive Folder. In that folder there are 3 documents:

  1. A spreadsheet with your name, and 3 other students names beside yours. These are the students whose work you should be reviewing. Instructions for the review are found on the document named “Review Assignment”
  2. A document named “Review Assignment”. Follow the instructions. This is the work that we would be doing in class. I will review the quality of input you give to the other students. This work is due Sunday, Sept 14.
  3. A document named “Week 2 Homework” is a reminder of the homework assignment for this week. This homework is due on Thursday, Sept 18.

Please email me with questions or if you have difficulty accessing the folder.

Some students have not yet emailed me their homework from last week (Description of major project topic, 3 available domain name options.) Please email it to me right away.

The New Top Level Domains

For this week’s online class, students are required to review the information about the new top level domains which have become available. This is a significant change to how website addresses are named.

For homework: As a branding exercise, please proposed 3 new domain names, and write a short explanation (1-3 sentences) what product, service, business, etc. your proposed domains is for.

As usual, you are also required to be write 2 blog posts for your project site, and be sure that your spreadsheet is up to date, listing all the posts you have written. If there are any questions, please email me directly.

Don’t forget to focus on driving traffic to your sites!
