EdBlogs make it easy to share course content and create an online community using a blogging format. Blogs use familiar, word-processor-style editing tools for adding and editing text and images, so it’s easy to create, update and revise posts. EdBlogs are set up with a simple template that accommodates most course needs, including blogging, journal writing, or even a simple course web site. Instructors will also be able to choose an alternate template to suit specific course requirements.
