The #technology will not only help students to make connections about what they're learning, but will also function as an e-portfolio, documenting their work.
A massive experiment at Virginia Commonwealth University involving 7,000 blogs could lead to a new view on how college students learn.

The course will focus less on the #expertise of the #teacher and more on the growing expertise of the #students.
It’s important to know what open educational resources are and how we might use them. But it’s just as important to pause and take stock — to think carefully about when and why we might have students working openly on the web.

Several years ago, I had the privilege of developing an online ministry model at Ouachita River Fellowship.
