The University Curriculum
I vote to put online community building on the curriculum.
I can’t think of a more challenging (and fun) assignment for students to conceive, develop, launch and run their own community.
You would learn how to use web tools, how to market ideas and beliefs, customer service, SEO, analytics and a bunch of other skills.
It would look good on the CV (resumé) and I suspect a student who runs a strong fashion community might prove very attractive to employers in the industry.
