A page per course, perhaps. A Wikipedia model is what I'd like
to develop. Facebook may facilitate the Wiki approach, as well as
become a de facto "You at World University," if someone can add a FB
box. Getting moderators (Wikipedia, to focus
on specific areas is something I'd like to facilitate, too. What would add to these approaches to make learning and teaching really fun?
