COURSE SITES FOR STUDENT CONTENT

The McGraw Center can help you integrate blogs, digital collections, maps and text-analysis tools into your course. These tools can give students the opportunity to work directly with course materials in creative ways to increase learning and comprehension.

The McGraw Commons is an online publishing platform for teaching and learning. It includes several installations of web-based teaching tools, hosted on Princeton servers. Currently, the McGraw Commons offers:

WordPress: which can be used to build either traditional websites, or course blogs. It is possible to use both types of installations for posting video, text, maps, or audio files. Commonly, these teaching sites are used for student-created content that is part of a course assignment.

Sites created through the McGraw’s WordPress service can be cumulative, with work remaining from past course offerings (with student permission,) or used as a one-off exercise for a single course. The sites have varying degrees of visibility, depending upon course needs.

Omeka: a web publishing tool that is made for storing and commenting on online collections. Omeka might be used to display a virtual gallery, curated exhibition, archival collection, or other materials that can be best represented by a combination of text and images. Students can curate course collections in Omeka, as part of a collaborative assignment.
