Great Works of Literature

“This assignment asks students to add a tale to The Thousand and One Nights on the course blog. Through an act of creative imitation that exploits the Nights’ additive structure, students participate in the text’s history of multi-author composition. They also prepare for a face-to-face discussion analyzing its intricate narrative form, and the relation of form to content.”
—Prof. Laura Kolb

Introduction to Formal Logic (Philosophy)

“The approach to designing this course was somewhat ambitious. [We] wanted to develop a complete course package, including a textbook, video lecture series, and course website (with automatically graded homework assignments); it should be easy for other instructors to use and adapt; and, it should be designed in such a way as to be adaptable to use as a fully-online course.”
—Profs. Jesse Rappaport and Eric Mandelbaum

Usability, Privacy and Security (CIS)

“Th[is] Hybrid course artifact . . . is the “Leaky Apps” Discussion Board. This is a two-week online assignment where students are asked to conduct online research to find a recent news item regarding a mobile app that has leaked (i.e. revealed personal information about its users without their consent).”
—Prof. Raquel Benbunan-Fich
