Here’s an example of a collaboratively-created (students-teacher) academic hypertext from UCLA. The hypertext (generically, a website) is composed of information and critique that is timely and relevant to current and prospective UCLA students. One section that caught my attention is on relativism and curriculum. The professor, Robert Samuels, established a palate of choices and criteria that students combined and integrated to generate the five areas of research that were ultimately included in the hypertext.

Their work is much more fancy than anything I’ve yet been able to inspire – to date. There are some exciting possibilities percolating now, and slow-and-steady progress from coursewiki to coursewiki.
