A new content type - "Word Cloud"
I'd like to suggest a new content type - "Word Cloud"
Word Cloud is a data visualization technique, used for representing text data, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency.
The content type would be a collaborative one - it would have a text input field for users to type in their words, and a display area showing the Word Cloud.
It would be dynamic – it would change with every new entry.
It could be used in class or in an online course as an introduction to a new topic – to assess student's prior knowledge of the topic. For example the students may be asked "When you think of topic X – what words com to mined – add them to the word cloud"
It could also be used as a form of a survey (the size of each word indicates the item's popularity – this could be a base for discussion…
I hope you consider this content type
