Hopper, M. E. (October, 1999). A project about projects: Watching academic electronic media projects evolve [Abstract]. Presentation at the Media-in-Transition Conference, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA.

Anyone who has been involved with an electronic media project in an academic environment knows that there are a wide array of complex issues surrounding a project's development. This presentation will describe an ongoing project to systematically document and compare how academic media projects are conceptualized, created and managed. The main focus of this work is on determining relationships among the financial, legal, technical, and human factors within projects. The long term goal is to illuminate characteristics and choices that result in sustained successes, and ideally, identify and disseminate self-sustaining approaches.
