You need not visit every video, but instead select at least 4 videos to view. They may be from the same playlist or from several different ones.
View and comment on your selections using some of the Network Literacy skills discussed by Rheingold and feel free to apply what you already know about reporting in you comments. If you learn from the videos that’s worth a comment too.
Yes there is a lot there. That’s where your use of Network Literacy and your own needs comes in.
Feel free to use more than 2 minutes if you feel that is necessary.
