Blog Assignment

Assignment Description

One of the major assignments in this course is to keep a blog.  The first step is to create a blog on the platform of your choice.  Some suggestions:

Please leave a link to your blog in the comment section of this post.

You can make it public or private – choose which ever makes you more comfortable.  If you do make it private, please make sure your classmates and I are able to read it. The title of your blog is also up to you.

Your blog must be created by the end of class on Friday.

Exemplars

Here are some of the best from previous IDC classes:

  • A response to each blog prompt.

Evaluation

The structure of your blog will be evaluated according the the requirements listed above.  Selected posts will also be evaluated throughout the course. (More details to follow).  Other posts will be used in conjunction with my own observations and rubrics to determine project grades.
