Whiteboard Solutions for the Digital Classroom 

March 15th (2:00-3:00 pm)

with Jason Block and John Zayac

We will describe in detail the best way to carry out each method, as well as both necessary and optional software/hardware needed for each method. The methods discussed will range from low tech (filming yourself at a physical whiteboard, filming a piece of paper as you write on it, using a zoom/blackboard digital white board) to higher tech (using collaborative digital whiteboards, using an infinite space whiteboard, using a wacom).

Web Scraping with Python (bs4) (in collaboration with the GC Digital Initiatives)

April 19th (12:00-1:00pm)

with Filipa Calado from GC Digital Initiatives

This workshop explores a Python library that allows users to work with and analyze web-based data. The Beautiful Soup (bs4) Python library enables users to pull data out of web pages made of HTML and XML. They can then use bs4 to search, categorize, and structure HTML and XML documents. Bs4 is relatively lightweight and easy to get up and running, and we will practice scraping popular websites like the New York Times. Though bs4 offers a beginner-friendly approach to web scraping, some basic familiarity with Python and HTML is highly encouraged. NOTE: This workshop is also included as part of GC Digital Initiatives Workshops.
