MLX Item #843 Alan Levine of Maricopa Learning Exchange has developed an
online workshop on "blogging" (hence "blogshop") was designed to introduce faculty to the world of weblogs and to provide them basic steps for creating their own blog using MovableType.
Follow the link to the blogshop. The entries are a great outline for anyone interested in doing a workshop on Movable Type. In this entry:An Idea:Blogfolios, he discusses using weblogs as a porfolio tool.
One of the primary reasons is the blog platform is one that is generally geared toward personal reflection AND is chronologically organized, so one could develop it over time and benchmark growth. Blogs as we have seen, can include any sort of electronic file as an artifact. And the comment features allow feedback from the outside world.
