Student generated content (SGC) promotes a digital learning environment where students are prosumers; that is, both content producers and consumers, co-creating, collaborating and sharing their work with other students. Meanwhile, the tutor takes on the role of facilitator encouraging students to search for a deeper understanding of the subject matter via discussion & analysis in seminars. For students, a wide range of cognitive disciplines are needed to successfully filter subject reading material and to identify content useful for: presentation to their peers; peer assessment; and course examination.
