Session 2: Tech Skills, The About Page, Intro to Audio and Video
Before Coming to Session 2:
- In a Word, Pages, or Google Doc document, write a bio or intro to put on your About Page.
By creating audios and videos for each Professional’s PAL site, we explore a more personal side of each Professional, and add depth to the memorabilia and stories. Audio is traditionally what we call Oral History (although there can be other audio throughout the site) and for video we have a Curated Life Review (Snapshot, Portrait) which often entails a Professional going through some of their memorabilia and talking about their life and career.
The About Page is a way to invite your audience to your site and give a quick snapshot of who you are. Start with a bio and photo and as you become more familiar with your site and how you’d like to conceptualize your site, you can add and edit your About Page to further reflect the intro to you!
