here is the current grab bag of topics I've been playing with
here's how to
setup your google drive
setup your google drive to be a simple web host (no php or mysql...yet)
intro to jQuery
hand written SVG files
here are some
cookie cutter animations
Including SVG files on the wiki currently requires you to change your
-- this is found in your wikispaces dashboard. You can then see that your SVG file is currently shown as
[[image:flower.svg width="300" ]]
You don't have to put in the width and height but it may nice to change it. Don't forget to change it back to using
or you will be stuck editing the code.
I'll get to this section soon but here are a few fun things:
gallery with video
gallery with clipping
I'm going to upload some simple games that I made from scratch. The graphics will be limited but I'll probably have some interesting
that will be code for the most part using the visual drag-and-drop GML rather than scripts. The purpose is to help the introductory coder who may get overwhelmed. There are a number of GML variables that will need to be accessed like (image_index, sprite_index) but perhaps this will provide motivation for using scripts later.
My prototype games:
Here are my GameMaker Studio files::
Here are some
tutorials translated from 8.1
Links I would like to explore:

I'm looking to doing something custom for a language thing (wiki-language dictionary). I haven't really started and I'm not sure it'll do what I want. I'll put my findings here.
classes, I use
a standard home page
as well I use the following
as a means of quickly making personal pages for my students.
I'll put a few of my old resources here when I get to it.

that I mostly used as assignments--they were kind of neat because they were
different for every student

I'm working on some ideas of introducing repetition and algorithms that make patterns to provide motivation for learning loops and functions (or methods). These ideas use my research into polygon languages which most recently use my web resource
exercises in construction
I'll probably have a specialised version of TileLand for these exercises but it's still a work in progress
Keystroke level history of documents
It was hunting around for this (stumbling over Etherpad etc.) but it turns out that if you compose using Google Docs and you have get the extension "Draftback" you get exactly this. Here's
that tipped me off to this. Any you can just add extension of
to Chrome and if you enforce that all documents for a certain class must be composed with Google Docs--there will be a record of every keystroke that you can then have access to and peruse. Probably it's enough to catch would-be plagiarists.
misc. videos for teaching
Will organize at some point but...
