OpenStax Rap Research Lab: Student Research Understand what you read HTML Marquee - JavaScript Marquees and JavaScript Scrollers Our favorite marquee script for images, RSS feeds, products, plain text... Below you will see some tee shirt images scrolling (as in the right sidebar). These are actual tee shirts for sale at "Zazzle", but more importantly, this marquee is well suited for a display such as this. Since it is plain HTML and does not use javascript, search engines like Google can see the content and parse it easily. The script below will pause when you hold your mouse over any of the area. The simplest way to code a scrolling box is inside of a table or DIV. Below is a script that is perfectly sized for selling shirts, mugs, buttons, stickers and all manner of products from Zazzle. The scroll will stop when you pass your mouse over the field above. If you want to create your own script without using Zazzle there are a number of ways to do it.

Engaging Introductions for First Day of Class One of the things I always try to do at the beginning of class or even a short workshop is give participants opportunities to start building community — and this means that introductions should be engaging for everyone! Here are a few I have tried myself. Collaborative/Connected Introductions I recently tried this approach in a workshop on scholarly collaboration, that I called “collaborative introductions” but can better be called “connected introductions.” I think it would work well for any classroom context, even very young kids. It goes like this: As I introduce myself, I highlight elements of myself (mother, teacher, blogger, worrier, etc).For each element of my identity, I ask who else in the room has it in common. I loved how participants didn’t just focus on exact matches, but tried to find any connection. Guess Who Introductions Alternative CV Your Ideas? Do you have an interesting activity you do at the beginning of the semester/year? Banner image credit: Neal Fowler
