I'm wondering if this blog is a place to share our thoughts? It seems like a great resource tool, but I'm wondering where is the discussion?
Jan: Originally, this blog was just for the new blended committee for 2008-2009. We also have a working wiki for the committee. See the history for last year's blog/wiki. The intent of this blog was to explore research on blended learning. We expanded the conversation to include accelerated learning models from other universities - particularly those with 8-week terms. We were encouraged to open up the forum to all faculty so that we could invite comments from everyone. It's not an ideal discussion forum as is - but we can discuss opening up typical threaded discussion in Blackboard if that's a request. I'll bring it up at our meeting today.
Most people are just using the add comments option. But - you managed to add a section. Can you explain how you did that? Is that because you used a gmail name/password? Everyone is supposed to have "author" access. I think if you sign in you can add comments and post new blog entries. I did create a wiki and another blog that allows for "equal authoring" with one common username/password for all cucfaculty. I didn't add all the resources on that blog - but if people want to talk more privately - I could open that up to whoever wants a more private faculty conversation.
Coming Soon! - We will be posting a discussion in Blackboard as well. More info to come. cp
