Starting a new course - Summer 2010

I've decided to add to this blog with comments about summer term - rebuilding, as it were, from beginning to end.

20 of the 25 people in the course have created blogs so far, and they look good. I suspect that class blogs may be showing up as final projects in the course for several people, given their enthusiasm about blogging.

There really is something about having your own web presence that is very compelling. Unlike Facebook, your own blog is really yours to define. You can create a very informal, chatty blog, or create one that is more thoughtful and course-oriented, like our blogs here. You can share as much or as little as you like on your profile. It's a free and easy way to be online.

I'm looking forward to seeing where all these blogs go this term!

Dear Deborah,
Thanks so much for your support and help throughout the first week.
I just want to make sure about the aim of our blogs. Is it just for reflecting on what we have learned every week of the course?

Can I share my colleagues with beneficial links or thoughts, of course related to the topics of the course?
