Blog as a Tool for Learning

I was looking at Open Education (thanks to Stephen), and found this fragment on how to use blogs for the course:

Each week you should read the assigned material and blog answers to the questions for the week, or simply complete assignments for weeks when there are no readings or questions. Your blogging should demonstrate your understanding of the assigned reading material and should include original thoughts and synthesis. Don’t just summarize readings. Making connections between the week’s readings and either previous readings or previous blogging (of your own or of other students!) is strongly encouraged.

The site contains a lot of information if you are interested in this space.
