Thinking About Interaction Design for Online News Delivery

The journalism/news field seems to be a bit ahead of online education in grappling with two-way flow of content (news provider to end user…and end user to news provider). I’ve previously described learning as a content creation process (not only content consumption). Thinking About Interaction Design for Online News Delivery is still more concerned with improved ways of exploring content…but it’s still a good read: “I propose a system of design I call “productive interaction,” which views interaction as a medium that enables the user as producer of his or her own outcomes and meanings. Productive interaction aligns the design of non-linear content, context and affordance in an open, collaborative fashion, enabling the direct manipulation of the work’s material. Users can create custom, personally significant meaning spaces of their own.”
