Class-sourcing is a method of assignment-making in which students, usually working in teams, create and publish online digital artifacts dealing with course material but also of interest to a broader audience.
“Class-sourcing as a Teaching Strategy,” Gleb Tsipursky, History Program, Ohio State University. Inside Higher Ed, August 13, 2014.
Describes class assignments where students create and publish online digital artifacts such as wikis, websites, videos, and blogs to report on course topics. Includes benefits, examples of student feedback, a prompt for such an assignment, and samples of students’ work.
