YouNiversity in the open

Henry Jenkins has posted his recent article From YouTube to YouNiversity over at his own blog, which is good news because the Chronicle of Higher Education (where the piece was previously only available from online) is walled off to non subscribers. I previously received the whole text via an unauthorised email list posting – so it’s nice to have it in a form I can pass on.   

The article discusses the shape and impact of networked culture, and looks at how its recognition could be used to transform academic design and organisation – zoning in on Media Studies.

Christopher Sessums has also been focusing on this theme a lot recently, try checking out Read, Write, Mix, Rip, and… Burn, Baby, Burn: Notes on How Social Media Affects Conventional Teaching and Learning Practices and The Future Begins Now: School 2.0 Manifesto
