Thanks to Karen who via the eBN site explains the use of relative paths for stories created in Manila. Even though I understood the concept, I didn’t really connect it to the need until I read her explanation. I know that Barbara Ganley does the same thing with her students at Middlebury, and I guess I’ve had some vauge idea of how to use it with my own students bouncing around in my head. But now I have to think about it more.
There is so much potential here, and I find my problem is that I want to do it all. Terry mentions a multi-author Web log with one managing editor, and my mind races with the idea of what editorial responsibility could teach my students and how to work it in and set it up. Tim is photoblogging and Pam is audioblogging and everyone is moblogging. The more I know, the more I want to try. I find my thinking comes in sporadic bits that either coalesce in writing here or on bits of real paper while I’m driving or in meetings or wherever. Hard to focus…I really need to get a life, I think.
