An alternative to using Interest Spaces to hold ‘finished’ work might be to create a Class Posterous site. The safeguard could be for submissions to be submitted by email to me and then forwarded to the site ( ie no direct posting). Comments could be either turned on or off as we decided. This would allow ‘real world’ publishing for the product and so a real audience. All we would need to release is the chosen name for the site. Parents, fellow students etc could have a look. This would also keep full control and be independent.
Other advantages would be:
- simple arrangement of different kinds of media
- automated formating
- an introduction to new popular media
- could respond to what the students are using themselves
We should establish some protocols for names etc.
