As textbooks continue to increase prices, publishers and Depts. of Education call for ways to provide instructional materials for the web. The use of computer, instructional software, Internet resources and other media is generating courses where content is both designed to and created by a specific student community. Teachers and students are able to post updates, corrections and suggestions, with materials then reused for other courses. This presentation is open to projects involving the use of Multimedia Web 2.0 tools (wiki, blogs, podcast) for all language, literature and culture instruction, including autobiographies, e-portfolios, individual and class projects, interdisciplinary collaborations, etc.
