Make yourself at home

*This is an easy-to-use, but powerful online environment that's fun to use.

*We can use this site for anything you want to related to our course this term. My initial idea is to use it to make a written record of our in-class debates. But we don't have to be limited to that if you have other ideas that you're willing to try.

*For example, weekly discussion leaders could post their comments here and others could add their thoughts and conclusions about the various topics we take up week by week. If people discover some links to useful public journalism web sites, we could make a list of them so we would all know about them and have a handy reference for finding them quickly when we needed them. Research about our guest speakers could be summarized here. Above all, we should approach this as the learning opportunity that it is, and have fun doing it!

A few quick points to remember for those new to wikis:

  • To edit a page, go to the page and click the Edit button. You can change everything in the main area of your page. The Wikidot language is easy to learn but powerful.
