The assignments in INFO 200 are meant to build on student knowledge of a community’s information behavior, understanding of peer-reviewed research articles and community-created resources related to the group, and a synthesis of our course content with findings about the community. Blogging and the other major assignments should provide content and insights for the successful completion of the research paper. Content can be remixed and re-used.
For example, this student’s work focused on dog owners as an information community illustrating the path from blogging, through the assignments, to a successful paper.
Thanks to SJSU student Michael Ulrich for providing these assignments!
