"Successful" Class Blog

“Successful” Class Blog: “Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more and more of this:

I have to hand it to all of you, you’ve done an amazing job with keeping things fresh and real at the Class Blog this semester. If you remember, I started the semester with a plea to participate and a flat out declaration, that ‘this is a grand experiment.’ Well, for my money, this has been a great success!

Cole Campalese at Penn State used a Weblog with his Information Sciences and Technology class this fall to discuss issues related to class. The part I really like is that he hopes to add to the blog in upcoming semesters, making it a course text. It’s good stuff. Take a look, for instance, at this thread about computers that can make themselves smarter.

I know it’s obvious, but I just want to point out that the instructor’s investment in this blog is probably what made it a success in large measure. Teaching with a Weblog takes work, but it’s work that I think, and it seems others think is well worth it.”

been there, done that. this is a pretty good example, but it doesn’t really integrate as much as i like.
