This chapter describes a MySpace media assignment designed to engage students in learning as they present their work on Web pages. It shows that student interaction increased dramatically as a result of the assignment. Students far exceeded the requirement of adding a minimum of 10 classmate websites to their own projects by adding between 12 and 25 classmate projects. They created a web of projects connecting students as they viewed findings from the spectrum of media sources covered by other students in the course. The chapter also explores the use of course-management systems for expanding student engagement in research experiences.
