Higher Ed Instruction and Collaboration w/ GLAMS?

If others are interested, I'd like to brainstorm some ways that historians who teach at the college or grad level might be interested in collaborating with GLAMS–that is, galleries, libraries, archives and museums–in specifically new-media, social-media, tech-enabled, digital ways as part of their courses.  I'm picturing anything from video conferences or web chats with curators to course projects that build upon or enhance knowledge about an institution's already-digitized materials. The Internet allows for easy collaboration across distances and institutions, but its vastness can also make it hard to identify the colleagues, venues or topics around which to strike up those collaborations.  How can GLAMS not already located on campuses best offer "remote" programs or services through or to instructors that will involve higher-ed students in actively using their collections?
