recruiting for blog study

I’m looking for a few volunteers to participate in a small research study on the uses of weblogs to support collaboration in undergraduate classrooms.  If you are teaching an undergraduate class this spring and using a blog in conjunction with your class, and are interested in participating in the study, drop me an email at scl2103[at]columbia[dot]edu  Please include your name, and a brief description of your class and your weblog use.  Thanks!

(also, please feel free to distribute this request!)

(spam-friendly email: to send me an email, replace the [at] with @ and the [dot] with . )

  1. Sara,
    I’d be interested in your results. Ask Lekshe at http://lekshe.typepad.com as she has a weblog and is doing a course on how to do weblogs at University of Oregon.

  2. I’d be interested in participating.
    I have a general blog that I use to relay information to all of my classes. I find it very helpful in that it has reduced the number of times I repeat myself a day from 27, down to 9. Here’s the site: http://www.livejournal.com/~prof_chuck/
    I have also used a community blog in a Strategies for College Success class designed for incoming freshmen. Here’e the site: http://www.livejournal.com/community/ngcsu_sfcs/
    You should also check out Wythe Whiting’s CogBlog at Washington and Lee. I particiapte in their discussions and I think it’s great. Here’s the URL: http://bloggery.wlu.edu/whiting/

    Thanks for the info, Chuck and NineShift. The study is actually underway at this point, so I’m no longer soliciting new participants. I’ll be presenting the results in May; watch this space for links to the presentation.

    I use the blogs to practice writing and correct texts in the classroom, and sometimes to collaborative writing.
