Designing Digital Communities


I will be teaching a class on Designing Digital Communities this summer at SVA.

This class is an introduction to crafting the platforms and experiences that enable communities to collaborate, create, and innovate. We will explore social networks, memes, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, online petitions, and other models of digital community participation. Students will design concepts and prototypes for their own digital communities. No coding experience required.
