You will create your own blog for this class and write an original post for your blog at least once per week for the remainder of the course. You will comment on at least one classmate’s blog per week for the remainder of the course. You will also create a wiki for this class and populate it with links to your blog, to the blogs in your RSS feed, to the educational portals and resources that you have found in your research. You will present your wiki and blog to the class. The following criteria will be used to evaluate your presentation:
