EDU Blogging Research

We are working on an article and a new toolset that has sent us down the path to investigate Blogging in Education. Robert Shedd, an IST student working in the Solutions Institute, and I are working together on this to see what we can figure about how blogging is being utilized, what role rich media plays in blogging, and if there is a need for tools to create content quickly and easily. In the commercial spaces, there are tools and services available, but it is still a back room effort here in higher education. I thought I’d throw this page together for a landing place for our research efforts … at least for the time being. Feel free to browse this space and as always, contact us or leave comments. Thanks.
