African History and Culture capitalizes on several web 2.0 tools to present different inquiry-based learning opportunities. The course allows students to view current – and constantly updated – web content using RSS feeds.
The RSS feeds offer students the opportunity to access several content-specific resources at once, and choose what information to explore within them in order to improve discussion posts, assignments or other coursework.
Using RSS feed technology, African artists’ current work is streamed into the course and these real-time exhibits are automatically updated. This dynamic presentation of current African art helps encourage exploration of the subject matter.
Below is an example of a streamed exhibit from African artist Sane.
