Blogs for class
From Georgetown University Commons Knowledge Base
Course blogs are one of the most popular uses for blogs at Georgetown. Created for either a single semester or extended use, a course blog offers students a responsive, user-friendly social system for interacting beyond the classroom. When set to "members only," it provides a safe, private extension for classroom conversation; when set to "public," it gives students the opportunity to engage with their classmates (and even others) in a public space.
Blogs are also commonly used for research or internships, as a way to keep notes and information in one place and to reflect on the experience as a whole.
