My first use of Flickr in class: Campin's Merode Altarpiece

Here's my first use of Flickr in my online Survey of Art History class. Students added comments and most importantly, added their own annotations to this image and other details of the Merode Altarpiece. A successful experiment -- but difficult to keep track of student work (some students didn't follow my instructions to choose a username that I would recognize), and of course one or two students just had trouble using Flickr. But all in all, I think they enjoyed it.
