"Knowledge Ecosystems" was the first course I taught at Bennington College as a CAPA Fellow.
From the course syllabus:
"How can you harness the Internet to create a personal “knowledge ecosystem” that augments and extends your intellectual and creative investigations with the outer world? While we have witnessed the explosive growth of the Internet over the past decade, the Internet is not a single static thing. Rather, it is an evolving accumulation of technologies that have evolved to synthesize vast stores of information, sophisticated and dynamic user-to-system interactions, and large-scale multi-dimensional social engagement, all with enduring memory.
This module will delve into the state-of-the art in Internet information and knowledge-sharing technologies, and students will co-create a working platform that can be used during their time at Bennington and beyond."
