Project Label is a new site that I’m adding to The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience”.
The site provides “social nutrition” labels to corporations based on a number of criteria including safety, nutrition, values, etc. The labels in large part are determined by users on the site who vote on the usefulness and validity of articles on the corporations that other users upload.
Students can write their own articles to add, or can leave comments on the articles that others contribute, in addition to voting.
It’s an interesting concept.
Great idea for students to write articles and publish. I wanted to share another site with you that allows anyone to create and publish courses. It is http://www.learningzen.com and it is a free online learning management system that lets anyone publish courses and validate learning. we have been out of beta for a week now. We are thrilled at the variety and quantity of courses that have been published for public consumption. We hope it will be a great supplement for the classroom teachers.
Thanks for your writing,
