Initial Assignment

The majority of work will be done in teams of several students. We will make team assignments during the first week of class. As a group, you will author and edit weekly blog posts. To facilitate collaboration (and allow the TA to evaluate your work in progress), we will use Google Docs to edit draft versions of your assignments.

Your first assignment is as follows:

  1. Create a new Google Doc named “[Name]'s Preferences”, where [Name] is your Purdue username.
  2. Share this document with the TA (
  3. From the topics listed on the lecture schedule, please list your top three preferences for your group wiki project.
  4. If you have any other requests, concerns, or comments, please include them at the end of the document.

If you don't already use Google Docs, here's how to get up and running:

  • Go to and sign in.
  • If you don't already have a Google account, click the “Get Started” button at the bottom right.
  • Note that you don't need a Gmail address to use Google Docs, i.e., you can create an account using your address.

We will make an effort to assign groups based on these preferences and student backgrounds, but obviously cannot guarantee everyone will get their top choices.
