If you are interested in starting a blog and don’t want to wait for the November workshop, or would rather learn to blog on your own timetable, you are in luck. The Fusion Blogging webpage now offers an updated Blogging with Edublogs handout and short video tutorials (screencasts) to lead you through the steps of setting up a blog. You will also find links to example blogs and information about how blogs are being used in education.
For those of you who are already blogging and thinking about setting up blogs for your students, you will find guidelines in the updated handout and setup procedures in the screencasts on how to accomplish this with Learnerblogs.
And, there’s more! If you want to earn 3 Professional Growth hours while you blog, you can enroll in the free, online Moodle course: Blogging with Edublogs. This course uses the handout and screencasts on the Fusion Blogging webpage to lead you through creating a blog at Edublogs. Work at your own pace, when it fits in your schedule, from any computer with Internet access. Just in time learning, at your convenience!
