Expect to do most of this bootcamp work outside of class time. You can work with others in the class, of course, a practice I would recommend. **You'll need to complete all the tasks I assign during this time to demonstrate that you're ready to proceed in the course. **Read that again, with feeling. **You're not ready to continue the course until you've completed bootcamp.**
Starting about Week 7 or 8, I'll ask you to design and pursue your own project, one that continues our study of weblogs, wikis, or another social media phenomenon as suggested by the materials we've been working with. The project gives you a chance to take the last half of the course in a direction of your own design. I'll give you more information on this when we come nearer time.
You may need to adapt your working habits. Rather than putting in a burst of activity one day week, you'll need to **take time every day to get things done** - posting a draft or initial responses to activities, commenting on the work of others, having a look at what others are doing to get a sense of what you are doing, narrating your own course experience - using your blog and Twitter. Your blog and Twitter are how you support your learning, and how you support each other as a learning community.
Your **work for the week (weekly summaries and any projects assigned) must be posted to your blog on time or you will receive 0 points for the week**. Read that again. Nil points. That will hurt your final grade. Post regularly. Post early. Post often.

The general picture presented of weblogs, wikis, Twitter, FB and other social media is painfully anemic, and often just wrong (Txting, FB, and Twitter has not created a crisis in grammar or spelling among children. Wikipedia can be just as trustworthy as The Encyclopedia Brittanica... ) So to start, we'll look at what more there is to see and say about social media. We'll consider how blogs are actually being used now, consider what else is possible, consider what is myth and what might be substantive. We'll look at various angles such as the use of social media in learning, marketing, politics, social interaction, revolution, resistance, and identity creation. We'll consider implications of literacy, copyright and the law more broadly, the relations with mainstream media. In the end, we're asking the question, How might we change our ways of thinking and doing in order to make the best use of social media?
