I’m writing from the SIGCSE 2010 Media Computation Preconference Workshop.  It’s going really well.  Beth Simon is right now sharing the wiki  that the “old-timers” have been assembling with quizzes, tests/exams, and homework assignments, to help people with figuring out how to do these things in the Media Computation approach.  Beth also put together a video of student work contributed from various Media Computation teachers.
