Teaching with Edublogs

Edublogs is a WordPress-based blogging and website creation service that offers Georgia State faculty, staff, and students a free and easy way for students to share text-based and multimedia content online. This seminar will explore ways that faculty can integrate student blogs and websites into their syllabus to deepen student engagement with course content, encourage collaboration, and provide a means online student assessment. We will also explore how you can apply gamification principles to encourage student blogging through the ClassBadges integration.
