This isn't going to be brain surgery or rocket science. I'm just going to show you a bloke's blog.
I've been keeping a blog for my classes since 2006. I don't think it's all that fancy, but Marc Doesburg asked me to talk about it. I've got about a dozen points to make.
- Neat! (no bits of paper flying around)
- Interface (Can involve your students)
- Convenient (try writing on the whiteboard from your home).
- Permanent (I hope!) and it can serve as a record, what they call an e-portfolio
- Accessible (for any student who is ill, has an appointment . . . or has graduated)
- Useful (a means of managing online resources)
- Cheap (It costs absolutely nothing to try)
- Fun and interesting (bells and whistles in the form of gadgets)
- Recyclable (can 'hide' posts as drafts and reschedule)
- Guidance (a means to prevent students being overwhelmed)
