The paper chase

Last year when he was teaching the Media Fluency class, Professor Greg Downey wrote about the Finding Content Offline assignment on his blog. To his surprise, it was viewed over 4000 times. “So was the assignment a success?  Yes.  Besides introducing them to a whole series of physical and virtual information tools on campus at once, there were several spin-off benefits,” he writes, some of which included being thankful for being able to find so much online.
