I am having students from this year edit the work of last year's students. This is a great exercise. I really like the avoiding viruses page — while not perfect, it is a good overview, particularly the slide share at the top of the page.
And I love the effective online privacy wiki as well.
Back to grading!
The point is that sometimes students should not only create from scratch, but should edit something previous students have done — asking themselves what should be improved. Sometimes asking oneself what is missing is exactly the type of deep learning experience needed. I'm finding I have to work with students on editing. We have a lot of improvement to do.
