Event description

Description

This workshop will explore blogs and wikis and the role they can play in supporting course pedagogy. A course Blog provides a simple, asynchronous, classroom-independent space within which instructors can manage certain portions of their course and students can practice writing and critical thinking skills. Wikis provide an easy way for students to develop and publish content in a Web-based environment through collaborative means.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • Create a class blog and a reflective journal using the Campus Pack tools in ELMS;
  • Explore various educational uses of blogs;
  • Explore the Campus Pack wiki tool in ELMS;
  • Discuss ideas for fostering team-building and collaboration among students via the Wiki environment;
  • Compare the characteristics and uses of blogs, discussion board forums, and wikis.
