Recently we received some requests from schools about allowing students to create blogs as part of their courses using Cardiff University Blogs, but restricting access to just lecturers and students.
The Cardiff University Blogs platform is currently designed for public blogging. Although you could do so by password protecting posts, it may not be the most suitable tool for your teaching and learning requirements.
We wrote this paper – “The Use of Blogs for Teaching and Learning in Cardiff University” to introduce the blog services in Cardiff University and to help you understand where the blog tool is of most benefit in relation to your teaching approaches and desired learning outcomes.
Your comments about this paper and/or your experience of using the blogging tools for teaching and learning are warmly welcomed.
