Meet the Interactive Rams

So, with the new semester, I've been teaching a new course here at Fordham University, Interactive Media, and one of the things that we've done is to set up a blog here on blogspot for the course, with the 11 students enrolled in the class all contributing regular posts. I'm providing an occasional entry of my own, and adding comments on their posts. The students themselves are encouraged to add their comments to each other, and we even get some additional comments coming in from the outside world.

The required text for the course is the anthology I edited with Ron Jacobson and Stephanie Gibson, Communication and Cyberspace (along with supplementary readings, some of which the students themselves are finding). They're also finding some interesting, and amusing, videos.

Just to be clear, I'm not making any claims to be doing anything new, others have been teaching courses like this for some time now. But if you want to take a look, or even check in from time to time, you are very welcome to do so. And if you want to leave comments on any of the posts, that would be fantastic!

So, heeeeeeeeeeeeeere's the link:

This blog looks like a wonderful learning experience enhanced by the raw intelligence of the students contributing to it.

I think this is a great learning opportunity only enhanced by the raw intelligence of the students contributing to it.
