The Domain of One’s Own educational philosophy develops digital literacy among students and staff by providing them with their own domain name, web hosting, and facilitating critical inquiry. Originally conceived and developed within the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies (DTLT) at University Mary Washington, this radical initiative has been hugely popular and adopted by universities across the US and internationally.

'Liberation depends upon a thought - a thought that things as they are can be different than they are.'
‘Home. Territory. Space. Place. To claim your domain online—and specifically, to help learners claim their domains—taps into all of these meanings. It is about taking control over our virtual spaces and our personal, virtual territory. It is about knowledge—our personal knowledge that we can showcase to others. It is about building a digital home.’
When students take learning into their own hands, they have no use for learning management systems.
