What this Wiki is for:

This Wiki is a tool to support the media studies class: New Media and the Presidential Race, held at the University of Tuebingen WS 2007/08. 

The main goal of the class is media literacy. We will approach this through reading and understanding theoretical texts, analysing different sources and producing text.



How we are Using the Wiki:We are not using the Wiki like a Wiki!

We are using it as a tool to publish texts produced for and after the class and to communicate about these texts.

That means we are not using the Wiki to collaborate in the production of texts but to exchange material and knowledge and to publish what we produce in class. After we have finished the class, the Wiki will function as a collection of our theory discussions and of the texts we produced in class.



How you can make this Wiki work:

This is a public place, play fair! Stick to the rules and requirements.

If you have suggestions how to improve this Wiki let the group know in class.
