Date Assignment Who Due Status Description
Sep 18 Installing Sahana All Sep 25 In progress Working in pairs, find instructions on how to download and install Sahana on the Sahana web site and install an instance of Sahana either on your department's server (if you have permission and access to it) or on your own Linux or Unix machine. Keep a log of the time you spend doing this assignment on and prepare a 1-page summary of the steps required to install Sahana. The style for this write up should be a FAQ: Propose and answer the frequently asked questions about how to install Sahana.
Sep 25 Customizing Your Installation All Oct 2 In progress Working in pairs, once you have installed Sahana, customize your installation by removing modules, renaming your site, and making other customizations. Jonathan Damon will describe how these changes can easily be made. Keep a log of the time you spend on this assignment and prepare a 1-page summary of what you did and how you did it. The style should be a FAQ.
Oct 2 Choosing a Project All Oct 9 In progress Read through the project ideas on the project ideas page and think about what project you would like to work on. As a guideline, we should keep the two teams from Wesleyan and Conn College intact. That is, both members of those teams should be on the same project so that they can work in pairs. If you have your own project idea, send a posting to the mailing list so we can discuss it.
