Knowledge creation depends on pursuit of promising possibilities. This paper reports a case study of a graduate-level course, with promisingness judgments incorporated as an explicit goal of course work. The top-level goal for the course was to have students take collective responsibility for "the creation of an assessment of collaborative knowledge creation." This paper presents the pedagogical design of the course, describes technological affordances to support promisingness judgments, and discusses preliminary findings.
