Following up on Debra's post about projects. I've done something similar. I require students to sign up for 3 email newsletters (at least weekly; must report selections to me). They have to write x number of posts (perhaps 2 or 3) during the semester on the class blog. They have to show some evidence of research, not solely personal experience or opinion. They can't all be made during the last week/two weeks of class. They also have to make X number of comments during the semester. Graded down if all made in short time frame.
Blogger makes it pretty easy to aggregate all of this. Haven't tried it as a twitter of Google+ project but could also work. Filters would help, I think.
I then report the analytics as part of the metrics lecture. That brings it home to the class.
I make it a semester-long project, but I can see it being done in a shorter time frame.
