Wikis

A wiki refers to content created online

as a result of multiple users working on

the same content, but at different times

and from different places. (McIntosh, 2/09)

 

Famous sites for use and creation: 

Wikipedia,   Wiktionary     Wikiversity    

pbworks      Wiki              Wikispaces

Blogs

Blogs are online journals where the author

can write (blog) about any interest s/he wants.

The blogger can also use the blog to share

content picked up from other social media

sites (YouTube, Issuu) by taking advantage

of the simple embed codes offered by

those content hosts. (McIntosh, 2/09)

 

Blogger Good all-purpose blog; easy to set up and easy to comment (will allow comments from igoogle or livejournal accounts without a Blogger account)
Wordpress  Lots of options; takes more time to set up 
 Tumblr Easy to set up with nice backgrounds; difficult to comment if you don't have an account; allows anonymous comments
Livejournal  Takes a bit of time to set up, but does include many options; allows anonymous comments

Reflect:

What possibilities are there for using blogs in your class?  How?

 

What would be the benefits/challenges to your students for using blogs as opposed to paper journals?

 

What would be the benefits/challenges to you as the instructor for using blogs in your classes?

 

Benefits/challenges to you as a learner?

In class:        We will start by discussing expectations of this course. We will briefly discuss what the terms web 2.0 and social media refer to.  Students will then learn to maneuver through our course wiki.  They will set up their own blogs and learn how to create posts. 

Homework:  

1.  Bring a digital photograph of yourself to class next week or post it on Course Participants page. 

2.  Write your first post about one of the following: (a) an article or two you've read from the above supplementary information; or (b) a slide or video presentation from the above supplementary information; or (c) your thoughts, hopes, expectations, concerns about this class;  or (d) your thoughts or beliefs concerning social media.
