TitleDeveloping a course-specific blogosphere for social learning
Faculty/College/UnitSauder School of Business
Duration2 Year
Project Summary

This project will focus on the development of a course-specific blogosphere that will foster community building, discourse, peer evaluation, and social learning in courses that employ student blogs. The development will result in a tool for aggregation, tools for peer evaluation, and tools for enhanced interaction within the UBC Blogs platform. Building on the development of an existing CTLT-created plugin, the platform will allow for a course ‘community’ site that aggregates students’ blog contributions to a centralized location, while maintaining the integrity and customizability of each students’ individual blog.
