Teaching Web 2.0

Next semester I'm teaching a course I'm calling "Writing Web 2.0." I've been asked to please hurry up and submit my course description since registration starts next week. Here's what I've got. Would you take it?

Web 2.0 or the “Read/Write Web” refers to the many social networking and collaborative applications that characterize the second-generation World Wide Web. In this course, we’ll experiment with a variety of applications, including blogs, wikis, real simple syndication, and social networking sites. We’ll also read some practical and theoretical explorations of Web 2.0 and social networks. The major project for the course will be student-designed and will make use of at least one Web 2.0 application. Because the Read/Write web also has many educational applications, this course will be especially useful for both writers and future teachers.

I'd take it. I taught a similar course last spring. If you're interested, the syllabus is PDF'd on my prof website: http://slimcoincidence.com/prof/vita.html (Just scroll down to the teaching section.)

Sounds good. I'd put RSS in parentheses for clarification. I wish this class existed when I was in college...actually, I wish Web 2.0 existed.
