This Digital Portfolio includes all the assignments created for Clio II.
Here is the new Digital Portfolio Here is my Final Project
This week I’ve been working on and revising my final project. In the meantime, I commented on Jannelle and Mika’s preliminary projects.
For the final project, I have decided to explore hysteria in males. I recently found a lot of articles in nineteenth-century medical journals discussing the diagnosis of hysteria in male patients. I thought it would be fun to research this […]
This week I commented on Dan and Mika’s Image Assignments. I provided hyperlinks, so you can view the images with my comments.
Here is the link to my image assignment. I still need to work on formatting the div containers to align perfectly and to align the text within the divs. However, the images are done and any comments would be very […]

This week I tried to build a portfolio site for this class. I’ll admit that I thought it was not going to be difficult. I was wrong. However, my digital skills will improve with time. First, I set up Blue […]
<h1> Clio Wired II </h1> I will be using this blog for Clio Wired II. It will chronicle the great technological journey of this semester, from learning the language of HTML code to seeing an actual website that is not […]
