EdBlogs provides a blog for any course offered at Columbia University upon the course instructor’s request. 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. Take a look at the EdBlogs support page to learn more tips and techniques for managing an EdBlog.
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. You may see examples of how Columbia faculty have used EdBlogs to enhance teaching and learning by visiting the faculty examples page.
