20% Time

This quest will last all semester. It is inspired by Google’s once famous 20% time program in which employees could use 20% of their time to work on anything they wanted.

Twenty-Percent-Time-BadgeProduct of Learning

This one is a little different as each of you will choose something that is of interest to you. Broadly, I can say that whatever you turn in , it will must demonstrate a significant level of passion and effort.


Upon completion of this quest you must answer the following questions in any of the following ways: as a video log entry (post to YouTube), as a blog post via Medium.com), or as an essay via Google Docs (you may propose another response if you so choose).

  • What did you do (brief summary)?
  • What did you learn?
  • What was challenging?
  • What is the product of your learning (this can be an embedded screenshot or two, screencast (if doing video), or link to relevant content)?
  • What suggestions do you have for future students embarking on this challenge?
