Oprah's Life Class

We designed and built an [interactive companion] to Oprah's return to network television, [Oprah's Life Class]. Class participants used Twitter to post answers to class questions, Oprah favorited the answers she liked the best, a live map showed participants the global nature of the event they were participating in, and Oprah used the piece during a series of live webcasts following the show.
