Please note, your syllabus requires you to create a blog for class use. We will discuss the reasoning and use for blog in first class, but please, set-up a blog prior to class through PRblogs.org. Creation of blog is simple and FREE.
I know this may seem scary, but at the end of the course, I hope you will become more familiar with social media and how to integrate these tools with tradional media practices. I am not the only professor using blogs as a teaching tool. Take a minute to read fellow educator's post, What does blogging teach?
