In "Blogs, Wikis, and Web Tools: Research in a Digital Age" you will collaborate with other students to conduct research around a chosen topic of interest. You will get suggestions from your classmates and work closely with your teacher, as your subject of interest comes to life. In this course you will become an effective researcher, as you explore the web-based resources available on your topic. All students will work in teams to define their topic, conduct preliminary searches, develop their research question, gather information from a variety of online resources, organize and synthesize their findings, and create a final project that contributes to the body of knowledge about their chosen topic.
If you have ever wanted to find out more about a topic that interests you while working closely with students who share common interests and using Web 2.0 tools, "Blogs, Wikis, and Web Tools: Research in a Digital Age" is the course for you!
