    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: GitHub is a platform for authorship, collaboration, and peer review. Originally created for software developers to share code, GitHub gained popularity because of its “fork” functionality, which allows users to copy code to their own GitHub account and make changes without affecting original files. The “Fork U!” resource, assembled by Croom and Stewart, offers low-risk GitHub activities. “Fork U!” resources are forkable (i.e., can be copied and reused without affecting the “master” project) and can be used to explore digital authorship, as they allow students to author projects, share and discuss copies of those projects, and copy or edit resources authored by others. Group projects authored via GitHub could deepen collaboration and extend shared authorship. Other examples of GitHub resources include these Musicianship resources, course materials for Humanizing Technology, assignments for Fashioning Circuits, and peer-assessment activities for Reproducible Data.
