… or does it? Blogging is growing like topsy at Brookes and across the academic spectrum, but what form should it take? Should the University have a hosted bog platform? Under what rules of engagement?
I have trawled around the site and found some of what is going on in out droplet of the blogosphere. If you are at Brookes and keep anything that might broadly be classified as a Brookes (or Brookes related) blog, please let me know.
- Brookes Blogs is one of Phil Whitehead’s initiatives at Westminster. This grew out of…
- Oxford Blogs “…is a space for Performing Arts students and the (very) odd tutor & learning technologist at Oxford Brookes University to explain, explore and express their own take on the world.”
- I have been using TypePad for JISC and HEA Project reporting: the myWORLD e-portfolio blog and Brookes Benchmarking. When Benchmarking moved to Pathfinding I set up a new blog using WordPress.
- The MA/PGDip Interactive Media Publishing provides space for student blogs. These are quite active. (But it took a Google search to find.) Chris Jennings, course leader, keeps his own blog, Page to screen.
- Phil Torr has a blog on his homepage at Computing and Maths.
- The International Student Advisory Service is trying to encourage a blog, but it appears as though the posts have to be uploaded by a third party.
- The CPD site mentions Web logs
- Bob Pomfret of the Media Workshop kept a blog of his expedition to Churchill, Canada with Earthwatch.
