For course overview and expectation, please see the syllabus.
This course blogging site will work as an archive of web tools and services. Per selected week, the instructor will post a prompt for students’ blogging participation, which will work for your personal reflection as well as formative evaluation (e.g., suggestion, satisfaction, correction, etc.). Your comment can be brief, directed to the instructor’s post or others’ comments, and should address your positive/negative experiences, suggestions for improvement, and/or insights for improving the course. The only criterion is, your comment must add ‘substance’ to your learning or to the course.
The first prompt for you to comment is to share attitude/belief about web tools/services (e.g., whether they will truly change education/learning, whether it is another hype or passing trend, whether they must be used more for teaching/learning, etc). If there is a tool you already use for learning or sharing and you find it as very beneficial, you can use your experience to support your argument. Before class on W, check how others think of web tools for teaching/learning. There is no correct or wrong answer – you can be honest!
