I’ve been asked to run a Zoom workshop on using COVE Studio that goes a little deeper into what you can do with the tools and content: Tuesday, August 31 at 8 am Pacific, 11 am Eastern, 4 pm British Summer Time, 5 pm CEST. Veterans as well as the COVE curious are welcome. Rebecca Nesvet and I will cover:
How you and your students can easily add images, film clips, or audio to your annotations (e.g., I’m having my students this semester upload the sonnets they are writing to COVE Studio, record a recitation of significant lines, then add those videos to their annotations of their own poetry—as a way to understand poetic form better; a colleague of mine at Purdue is having students include multiple film and dramatic versions of lines in Hamlet, including their own performances)
How to make effective use of the tag scheme (e.g., how to facilitate the sharing of study questions for specific passages in a long work)
How to link classrooms so you can analyze the same text across two sections or two courses
How to upload your own texts
How to create a critical edition of a text that you then put through peer review and eventual publication
If any of those topics interest you and you’d like to join, just email me and I’ll add you to the list: email@example.com.
