This year, in English 365: Eighteenth-Century Lit 1 — at UPEI — we tried to incorporate various technologies into the class.  The class met “face to face” just like other classes, but all the readings were available on a private class blog.  In this private blog, students also posted comments, thought, and engaged in discussions about the texts outside of class time.  We made use of Twitter — and students completed a variety of “twitter essays” using the hashtag #e365.  One of the major assignments was to contribute to public knowledge by choosing a trial from the Old Bailey and providing an analysis of it in a public blog on crime (here);

Another assignment was to choose a text or group of texts we studied and respond to those texts in a visual form (accompanied by some explanation) — these are the “photosponses” — originally posted on the private class blog, but too good, I think, to keep private.  Enjoy:)
