A Project About Projects: Watching Academic E-Media Projects Evolve
Mary Hopper, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Anyone who has been involved with an electronic media project in an academic environment knows that many complex issues surround a project’s development. This presentation will describe an ongoing project to systematically document and compare how academic media projects are conceptualized, created and managed. The main focus of this work is on determining relationships among the financial, legal, technical, and human factors within projects. The long term goal is to illuminate characteristics and choices that result in sustained successes, and ideally, identify and disseminate self-sustaining approaches.
