At the University of Leicester I convened the undergraduate module Activism and Protest in the Information Age.

A sample of the resources I created for this module can be found below:

1) Screencasts

These are short summaries of lectures and key concepts that are shared on sites such as Screenr. For example, here is a summary of a class on NGOs and new media:

2) Twitter

I curated resources for the class using the #actandprotest hashtag. These resources were highlighted in the face-to-face sessions and students were encouraged to share blogs and articles with their classmates using this hashtag. The tweets were made available on Storify for those who do not have a Twitter account:
