Talk:Unit 1: Exploring social networking sites
Comments from Jianwei -- Jianwei Zhang 11:10, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
I like a lot your course design, particularly the activity flow.
One suggestion is that after the learners watch the video, before they read the articles, you may add a brief paragraph summarizing what social networking is. As well, you may provide a brief intro to each of the two articles to highlight the key information and background the reading activity. The first reading is a research paper, so particularly needs backgrounding and scaffolding.
As well, you may want to change the order of these two readings as the second one seems to be more accessible.
Each page should have a link to your homepage.
