Why and Where
Blogging throughout the course is an excellent way to build a portfolio, publically showcase your work and complete discussion activities all at the same time. If you choose to blog instead of posting inside the course shell (Blackboard) then I would like your permission to syndicate your posts on this page. For details about what that means and why you might want to do it please visit this link.
I suggest that you use the hosted version of WordPress that is free for you to use so I can better support you. Here is how to set up a WordPress blog. However, you are free to choose any platform you want. Depending on how many students choose this option we will create discussion groups.
