Project SOAR is a rethink of what student reading lists mean. My contribution to has been fiddling with the code. Some of it has been adapting the layout and some o it is behind the scenes like tying entries on books to other sites and plugging in the review system. It’s been a good project to work on. Partly because Alan Cann has interesting ideas about what can be done with reading lists. More practically he’s also been very clear on what he wants done with the site, so I’ve never felt like I’ve been aiming at a moving target.

It’s also been very fast. My role was scheduled to start November 1. I actually started as soon as I heard funding had been approved, but even so it’s been a short project with a clear goal. Because it’s his project, you can read more about it at his site.
