This chapter first describes the author’s public course blog, which served as a common place to think aloud and work together publicly. The blog was not simply a supplement to the course; rather, it played a cognitive role in the distributed structure of the class, moving it from knowledge consumption to knowledge production. It helped disseminate the thinking that happened in class beyond those who registered to take the course at American University. The chapter then discusses the potential value that can come from new students in new iterations of the course “inhabiting” the same course blog in the future.
