For instance, in a section called “Peer-to-Peer Learning,” the instructors wrote:

Peer-to-Peer Learning   

This course encourages interactive, collaborative learning. Your peers are your toughest and best teachers.  In your future endeavors, you will depend upon the standards, fairness, eloquence, skills, creativity, imagination, and cooperation of your peers–and you will contribute in this same manner if the interactions in this class are to succeed. We encourage social and collaborative reading, discussion, debate, and learning in and outside the classroom, which we will try to facilitate through the social affordances offered by Lacuna Stories.
