Spend 5 weeks+ (approximately 5 hours a week) engaging and initiating with a virtual community. Your goal is to immerse yourself as much as possible in a virtual community (either one that you already have some experience with or a new one) to investigate what being a part of such a community is like. This is like doing ethnography and participant observation in a virtual space. Take notes about people's reactions to you and the social interactions that occur in such a community. Reflect on your own experiences, feelings, and interactions. You may create social experiments (without harming anyone) or observe other people's interaction in the virtual community. You may even conduct interviews (virtually) with people that you meet. And look for connections from your experience to the readings, lectures, and themes from the course.
