1. Go to christopherohge.com/education/ and click Register.
2. Create for an account with an email and password. The registration key is 'beinghuman20'
3. The workshop organizers will need to add you to the project.
Once you have been registered and added to the book, then click on ‘Select a book to manage’ then 'Terry Pratchett Archive Workshop'.
On the top-right of your screen, click on ‘Back to project’. This will take you to the home page, where you will click on Begin with “About this Workshop”.
(FYI: the triple-bar icon in the top-left corner shows the site’s Table of Contents.)
It would be a good idea to keep these instructions open, so in a new tab or window open the Archive Portal (also linked at the end of these instructions), which will take you to a gallery view of all the workshop images grouped under their respective categories (Illustrations, Ephemera, and Literary Material).
You could either click on the category heading to see a gallery of images or on an image thumbnail to access an image. You should then see an image with its metadata (data about the image) and annotations.
Take a moment to examine the metadata: what is missing? What additional information or relationships could be documented?
Annotating and Creating Content
Click on the blue View Media Page button.
You should see the image in the following interface:
In the top-right menu, you have several options to work with the image:
- Click the paperclip button to annotate the selected media
- Either click and drag to create a box over a portion of the image or select the + button
- Add annotation content (anything you see fit)
- Make sure to click “Done” for the annotation to appear!
- Click the pencil button to edit the selected media
- Notice that you could change the Title and Description of the item if you think something is wrong
- In the Relationships menu, select Tag. You could then make the file itself a tag or tag the file by relating it to other similar media files
- In the Metadata menu, you could change the metadata fields. You could also Add Additional Metadata.
- Click the + button to add a New page or Tag
- New page: This allows you to create free-form narrative that also links to selected media files in the Archive Portal: you could tell a story, write an analysis, posit questions in a blog format…
- Tag: select the pencil icon, click on Relationships and select Tag. Next to “To make this page a tag” click “specify the items that it tags”. Then select the page or media content you want to tag and click “Add selected.” Click Save.
Next to the triple-bar Table of Contents icon, in the top-left, you should see a Compass icon. Click on the Compass and then Visualizations. You will then have the option to visualize the Media connections or Tags in a network graph. Give it a try!
