¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 This publication is the product of a collaboration that started in the fall of 2010 when a total of eighty New School faculty, librarians, students and staff came together to think about teaching and learning with digital media. These conversations inspired this collection of essays, which will be disseminated as printed book, free book for various eReaders and a media-rich website where essays will be added and removed over time.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Released under a Creative Commons license and published by the Institute for Distributed Creativity in the Politics of Digital Culture Book Series, the essays selected for this rigorously peer-reviewed publication were assessed by the Series’ Advisory Board, the editor and a network of peers on MediaCommons.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 The open peer review process took place on MediaCommons, an all-electronic scholarly publishing network focused on the field of Media Studies developed in partnership with the Institute for the Future of the Book and the NYU Libraries. Varying from informal feedback to in-depth critical reflections, we received 155 comments by dozens of reviewers. The authors started the review process by commenting on each other’s texts, followed by invited scholars, and finally, an intensive social media campaign helped to solicit comments from the public at large.
