Welcome to Web 2.0 Fundamentals: Participate, Produce, Publish for Summer 2012.

ED 431 is designed as an introduction to the UAF School of Education M.Ed. in Online Instructional Design (ONID) program. Completion of this course (available to undergraduates) is a requirement of that program. It establishes several elements--portfolio, PLN, and others--that form the backbone of ONID.

This is a cohort-based course. You will be required to participate in a social network of your cohort members using various tools to share your work and review others' work, and your final portfolio will be shared publicly. Peer review is a major emphasis.

This site will serve as the main hub for instruction this semester. On the sidebar you'll find links to all course assignments, project descriptions, and evaluation rubrics. The syllabus will provide information on required texts, grading policies, and other important course-related information. Please familiarize yourself with this document as soon as possible.
