What we're up to on this blog

In case you stumbled onto this blog by accident, let me share with you what it is we are up to here.

We're experimenting with blogging as a means of communicating our thoughts and reflections about the utility, function, and problems of communicating online for a course at the University at Albany, SUNY called Communication on the Internet (COM 430z).

On the right side of the screen is the class blogroll. Each student has set up his or her own blog. On there, students will post at least once a week a reaction to assigned readings. Occasionally, they will post longer essays contemplating various aspects of the communication technology.

In the center here, I will post occasionally on various aspects of new communication technology, too, especially issues of using blogging and other communication tools for teaching.

It's an experiment!
