This is the second screencast published on this site that is based on an interview Alex Chapin did with Prof. Louisa Stein from the Film and Media Culture department. In this screencast Prof. Stein discusses her course on Millennial Media. In this course, students were required to create their own blogs and to post to Twitter.
To encourage students to read each other’s work, Prof. Stein created “blog collectives” and required students to comment on the blogs of students in their collective. An additional site was set up for the course that aggregated posts from all student blogs using the FeedWordPress plugin.
