In reading though everyones final blog post everyone seemed to enjoy writing a blog throughout the class. Some people even talked about Oncourse and how they proffered using a blog instead. Everyone had the opportunity to create a blog using a free service of their choice and configure it the way they wanted to. In doing so this made it easier for all of us to understand how the blogging software worked and be able to allow comments etc the way we chose to.
Another thing that most everyone mentioned in there final post is that they hope to continue with their blog. This may be hard to do if you do not have a reason, but by keeping a written record of would you do in class might be the motivation to continue. Maybe we should encourage professors and instructors to incorporate the use of blogs in more classes. It would help eliminate the confusion of using Oncourse and giving people the ability to take ownership of what they do. The blog like most people have talked about is a written record of what you have done throughout the class. It will exist for future reference.
If you have not done so you may want to read through what other people have been talking about. I found creating a course blog to be useful because I could easily post additional information that would help people out on there assignments. It was a good experience because like most of you this is the most consistent I have been in keeping up a blog.
