I am interested in knowing what is the name of the text book that you plan
on using for the course. I am a Phd student doing a dissertation on
"Edutainment and Convergence."

Subject: [Air-l] Course Prep Assistance Request

Hello All,

I am a Ph.D. candidate who has been assigned to teach an upper-division
course titled “New Media as Virtual Communities” for this fall.
Here is the catalog description:

“Technologically-mediated virtual communities considered through
analysis of historical precedents and influences and through an exploration
of the concept of community. Issues include a focus on social interactions;
the social, political, economic, and technological contexts of virtual
communities and the limits for their sustenance.”

I know many of you have done research in this area and have also likely
taught classes on the subject. I was hoping that some of you would pass
along some tips and ideas for the course, including but not limited to
literature and syllabi. I am not completely unschooled on the topic, having
taken a graduate seminar on computer mediated communities, but would like to
have the benefit of a variety of approaches.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Please respond off the list to coopman at u.washington.edu.

If anyone else would like access to the material I wind up collecting, shoot
me an email and I will forward any material sent to me.
