This discussion will explore class-sourced digital assignments. “Class-sourcing” refers to assignments where students create digital artifacts (websites, Pinterest boards, wikis, etc.) for a broad audience about a specific subject. Students research a topic, then analyze, organize and communicate their data in a digital format. Doing so strengthens student understanding of and engagement with class content, and builds valuable abilities relevant to their professional, personal, and civic lives in research, communication, critical thinking, and digital technology. In addition, with faculty reviewed content, they are likely more trustworthy, and present a wider range of views on subjects than Wikipedia.
