Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science in River Forest, IL offers a course on Internet Fundamentals and Design, LIS 753:

An introduction to the fundamentals of the Internet, including its origins, evolution, architecture, current issues, and future. Students will gain a basic understanding about Web content languages, Web site management, and design/usability principles. Students will also be introduced to the fundamentals of telecommunications and networking with examples drawn from the Internet. Critical Internet issues such as search engine limitations, security, privacy, copyright, governance, and other related topics will also be discussed.

It appears tomorrow they'll be looking at some weblogs. (Greetings and welcome, folks. Looks like an ecclectic mix of sites you're visiting. A little Technorati told me.)

[Update] Steven Cohen links to the blog of an Iowa University LIS class from Summer 2001. Great example of students sharing class-related material in a lively and convenient manner. Seems markedly better than than those binders full of outlines I used to break my back carting around. (Yeah, I'm aware there's a dark side. Ain't there always?)
