I have been pondering on the uses of blogs in this module: the following article has helped me in my musings...http://tinyurl.com/3m8wbd
I think the author make some good points about clarity and trust, busy-ness and perceived value.... what has emerged for me is that I like blogging and use this space to add richness to the learning materials we started with; but it doesn't lend itself to a place for discussion. Blackboard and the wiki do that.
If by setting up this blog I have found a repository for my own reflections and maybe taught one or two people how to use them for their own purposes, than I am happy enough with that.
I note that comments are becoming fewer on here... so I will do a belt and braces and post on Bb too......
