It's not so far fetched. Blogging has infiltrated college curriculum.One of the blogs that I visit on a regular basis is Blogher Toby Bloomberg's Diva Marketing. For the past couple of days, Toby has been blogging about this new trend...blogging as college curriculum.
She now has two posts about this trend.
This is the 4th (I think..Alex correct me if I'm off) class that Prof Brown has conducted where blogs were the heart of the course. Heart is a good word for the way Alex structures his classes. He uses the blog to not only communicate about the class but to post assignments, resources and of course, student blogs. Students are required to read blogs in a news aggregator, build their own blog, and in true blog fashion, comment on classmates' blogs.Curious about the "required blog list?"
Diva Marketing (Blog)
John Battelle's Search Blog**
Tim Berners Lee's Blog
** Class Text Books ... got ta love it! No boring academic books for Prof Alex's class. He's using Naked Conversations and John Battelle's Search Book.
And today, Toby has a SHOUT OUT to Corporate Bloggers to participate in a researh project with Dr. Walter Carl's Advanced Organizational Development class at Northwestern University. Details here.
