I’m teaching a similar course (I’m calling it Writing Web 2.0) this semester. If I had my act more together, I might suggest that we try to get the folks in our classes to work together somehow.

(Not to crush *all* your dreams for the upcoming semester, but not everyone registered for the League class has any idea what the comic book is.)

Assumption 2: That students who are *interested* in a topic are experienced in or knowledgeable about it.

Plus, there are a certain number of students (in the population, not necessarily in this class) who are competent enough with technology, but who Do Not Like it coming into the classroom, except in certain narrowly-defined forms.

I wholeheartedly agree that these skills are vital, and this class is essentially what I am trying to do with my Major- using technology and art ( in this case, literature) to combine in interesting new ways. Also; lightsabers.
