Welcome to the 33rd edition of the screaming pages Thursday Thirteen. The school year is quickly approaching and with it all the summer project deadlines.

Thirteen deadlines I have to meet…

    Â Â

  1. I need to finish formatting my help files so I can load them into WebCT by the end of the day (EOD) today.
  2. Custom tool icons need to be completed and uploaded into WebCT by EOD today.
  3. I need to gather up all of the resource documentation my co-workers developed for instructors and students and upload it into WebCT by EOD today.
  4. My course site templates have to be finished by 8:00 am Friday, July 27 (*gulp* tomorrow).
  5. Which is necessary because we’re replicating the templates and building 7 separate course sites with a shared look and feel. That, of course, happens at 8:00 am on Friday.
  6. Testing on the replicated course sites has to be completed by EOD Friday, July 27th so I have sufficient time to work on the customer materials for each individual course.
  7. I have to track down a librarian to review the individual course annotated bibliographies with me. I’ll need to know which of the books and resources requested by the course development SME’s and instructors are available and which are on back-order or won’t be ordered. This information has to go into the individual course sites.
  8. Course specific assignments and assessments (where available) need to be added into the individual course sites. Oh, and I can’t forget the individual course outlines need to be loaded and course schedules have to be coded.
  9. And those 7 individual course sites? They need need to be finished by Friday, August 10.
  10. Instructors have until Friday, August 17th to review their courses and request changes and modifications.
  11. While Instructors are reviewing their courses, I’ll be building my Second Life avatar and learning how to move around in the system. I figure if the boys can spend weeks playing with it as I’m building course sites, then I can have a week to help with the *ahem* research process. Or so it goes in my grand plan / fantasy life.
  12. Courses (if necessary) are revised. All revisions need to be completed by Friday, August 24 because school starts on August 27.
  13. Once this batch of sites are up, the real work begins – all those course sites, and a dozen or so other courses, need to be redeveloped for complete online delivery.
