2.00Gokart Student Blogs

The 2.007 class is structured with 12 weekly “milestones” which students must use their class lab notebooks for and write down their progress, thoughts, calculations, sketches, etc. Some students are detailed or previously experienced in using notebooks / journals (such as from an internship at a company which requires it for engineers), others write down pretty much exactly what the milestone requires and that’s it.

I was definitely part of the latter crowd. It was difficult for a professor to actually squeeze out of me a competent lab notebook of any sort.

To encourage more diversity and accessibility in design documentation, this semester I encouraged people to write about their builds on their personal websites or blogs. Now, the Department™ still requires the paper notebook as part of the grade. But, for the last milestone, a reflection and summary type writeup, I decided to break from that and give the students some flexibility. You now had the option of submitting the final MS as a site entry or blog post.

Here’s who took me up on the offer, and those who’ve had a running log of everything they’ve been doing too!
