This class will be a tour of the Social Web.  It will cover many topics, mostly just touching the surface.  But there will be plenty of opportunity to digg deeper and learn more by doing. 


== Idea behind this Class ==
There are two reasons for this class:

learn about the social web, social media and social networks
find out about new ways of teaching and learning


== Assignments ==


=== Ex.1: Google Trends ===
Use Google Trends to see how the popularity of the keywords ’MySpace, studiVZ, Facebook, Google’ has changed over the years.  Restrict your search to Germany.
Do the same for ’apple, microsoft, ibm’.  How could this tool be useful to you or your company?
