Final Course Feedback

Over this course , I have begun to understand a lot more about digital humanities as a whole. At first I thought this course would simply be about how to create a website and the tools in it. It was much more than that however , and over time I realized just how integrated digital […]

AI- Biased or Not?

For this exercise, I used MotBot to rate biases in sentence stems. The idea behind the bot is to help prevent stereotyping in models such as ChatGPT, and the bot prevented stereotyping, very very poorly. I went through a few ideas such as “a girl” or “a boy”, which provided generally gender-stereotyped answers, to the […]

My Storymap

This week, we were tasked with creating a story map to detail a topic. I wanted to do something a little different from usual, and focused on film locations in British Columbia. It can often feel like there is no Canadian representation in media, especially when it comes to featuring locations. There are many beautiful […]

Course Feedback

Now that we are over halfway through the semester, it has come time to reflect on all I’ve learned so far.

Working with Omeka

I found the installation of Omeka relatively smooth and simple, and ad no problems with it. Using it however, had a bit of a learning curve, especially in comparison to WordPress. It lacks the same customization WordPress has, however the preset themes it gives you are all nice and there are some options to customize […]
