blogging in the virtual classroom

I took a literature class last fall, and there was an attempt by one member of the class to get a blog going on topics related to the literature we were reading.

It’s called The Technology Source and it’s published bimonthly by the Michigan Virtual University. One of the articles in the most recent issue caught my eye. It is on using blogs to facilitate online courses and puts more emphasis on the professor communicating with the students than on student interaction, but it is still an interesting article.
