The Higher Ed BloggerCon seemed like a pretty cool idea when it was first announced and it’s absolutely fulfilling my expectations, through Day 3 at least. It’s a month long event that features two screencasted presentations a day, and it kicked off this week with the teaching strand. I’ve learned something from everything that’s been posted thus far and I’m really looking forward to what Ewan and James have on tap for Friday. Some pointers so far:
1. It felt like busy work or a chore because of a lack of interest in the class, time pressures, irrelevance, or a perception that what they wrote was not being read. 2. It was too overwhelming to read all of the posts. 3. They had trouble interacting with other students’ blogs because they felt uncomfortable or because there was nothing of interest to comment on.There is another session on copyright and podcasting that I haven’t gotten to yet. And tomorrow, it’s wikis and nomadic desktops.
