Assignment 2: Creating Metadata

Creating Metadata for your research data

Open the Explorer (Windows) or Finder (MAC) on your computer. Find the "quick access" or "recent files" folder. Pick the first three files that show up in this list and (try to) answer the following questions:

  • Who created the content?
  • What is the content?
  • When was the content created?
  • How was the content created?
  • Why was the content created?

Share and discuss your results with your peers in the excercise blog. Was it easy or difficult? Do you think you can repeat this task for all the files in your research process?
