Nominate your choice for best use of weblogs within teaching and learning.
I’d like to nominate Jason Nolan’s KMD1002″> and KMD2003″> blogs and the related student blogs which you can find by clicking on “Friends”. Prof. Nolan doesn’t just create a teaching space through his teaching blogs, he also creates an interactive community learning space. And some of his students (ahem) get carried away & become scholars who blog in their own right.

P.S. sorry screwed up the link the first time.

Am I getting too blog focused :O)
And Anne Davis for her great work with Edublog insights: http://anvil.gsu.edu/EduBlogInsights/
With a total lack of humility, I’m nominating the weblog I use for an introductory programming course. :-)
There are over 400 students in the course, and three separate instructors with their own class sections and lecture notes. We’ve found the weblog to be about the simplest and fastest way to get good-looking, well-organized content onto the web.
I’m nominating Peter Ford, for his excellent work over at Schoolblogs.
I would have to suggest a lot of french initiatives here in Quebec and some elsewhere, but I suppose that it would be preferable to nominate some in english to really get in the mood… I’m going to add Bee-coming a Webhead to those good nominations made before; in particular for this initiative.
I’d actually like to nominate my own e-learning Blog as one worth a second look.
The issues I raise are controversial to many and confrontiny to some.

Barbara Ganley has done some fantastic, exciting work with her students. Her blogs belong to her students, and are highly multimedia as well. Her Arts Writing class is one example.
