Question #3 part 2

In reading through some things I had saved in my bloglines list, I came across Will's recent post on using blogs as exams. He talks about students demonstrating what they have learned in the class on their blogs throughout the semester. Maybe that is a good way to do it. We know what we would ask on a test. Why not use blogs as a replacement? Then they don't need to be graded separately. Anyway, check out Will's post if you haven't seen it yet.

I'm getting a lot out of these posts--in a few weeks I'm going to be blogging about how my experiment with blogging went.

Nancy, I am a university student and one of my subjects requires me to keep a blog of my experiences. The blog is assessable, and I am given guidelines as to what is to be commented on on my blog. I've never kept a blog before, and I must admit, I have found it to be a very valuable learning tool. Most importantly, it forces me to regularly reflect on my learning, and it allows me to have one central spot where all of my scattered thoughts and insights are collected and put together. Additionally I think it is useful for my lecturer to have a clear outline of my learning process throughout the subject. Maybe that gives you some insight into a students perspective on the matter :) This is my weblog
