Can you provide a brief overview of the course?
Hodgson: In partnership with UITS Learning Technologies and the IU Archives, W171 invites students to explore a range of digital writing practices using the IU Bloomington campus as their grounding artifact. Students recreate key campus structures, buildings, and spaces in Minecraft EDU and design immersive experiences for visitors to our Minecraft EDU world(s).
Each of the structures built in Minecraft EDU includes layers of in-game content (embedded and/or linked to external web locations) related to student work throughout the semester: from personal connections to historical significance, from scrolling digital essays to playable audio/visual media.
