The L&S Collaborative Sites pilot project at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, a platform for the rapid development of online shared learning environments, promotes student collaboration, knowledge building, and a media-friendly learning environment. Join this in-depth discussion about how digital humanities instructors are leveraging this open source software (based on Drupal) to rapidly develop online spaces for course interaction, and integrating learning in online and face-to-face spaces, with a focus on design decisions that make online learning arenas more effective venues for community building and collaboration.
