Since Hollywood movies are bereft with sequels, look out open course watchers; NetNarr returns to the internet screens next week, another feed syndicated open course don’t call us a MOOC blockbuster. Last year’s course where I (Alan Levine) co-taught from afar to a class led by Mia Zamora at Kean University was one of the best teaching/participant experience I’ve had. Where on top of other things, I surprised class by showing up in person for the last meeting. This led […]
Almost a year ago Mia Zamora and I got very excited about the idea for a class we would co-teach in the spring. The rest was is Alchemy. Last week I headed back to Irvine, California for the 2017 DML Conference where I will get to share that alchemy (sadly Mia is not able to attend in person, I had hoped Rebeg and M might hack her into my session). Our session was Digital Alchemy of Networked Narratives: A Connected […]

Calling all Digital Alchemists…
Rebeg Maestro and I are here. We have been watching with interest the past 10 weeks your efforts in Networked Narratives. You have great potential. Please trust that we re not hackers or destroyers. There are things we can do for you in exchange for what …
This week unraveled a bit. Chaos overtook order. Things are being righted. Courses corrected. Actions taken. Kean University students got an email on lieu of a blog post; but for the record, this is what they did this week. Bus Tour 4: Cairo, Egypt Our last stop in our “Bus Tour” will be was Thursday morning where we met with a class at American University Cairo taught by Maha Bali.

Grand places are memorable. But equally memorable are places that appear ordinary but are attached to our personal, grand experiences. They are part of a larger narrative, and what we will explore this week. But first, let’s deal with… Do you have Audio Anguish?
