artifact description
To blog or not to blog, that is the question – and one that you should consider if you are teaching courses which require engaged student learning and introspective writing projects. Students are already using online mediums ubiquitously for posting their thoughts and communicating with friends, family, fellow students, and their instructors. Weblogs provide your students with personal journal space for your course writing projects in a format that they’re already using in MySpace and Facebook. Learn how to get students started on blogging right away with free tools such as Blogger and Tumblr in this hands-on workshop.
