Why Blog? [11:28 am]
Blogging lecturers say the technology provides them with easy online web access to students and improves communication outside of the classroom.
[...] Esther Maccallum-Stewart, a Sussex University historian is one of the pioneering British academic bloggers who are using the technology to teach and carry out research.
[...] The web log on the war set up on the university web-server meant she could look up queries raised in her class and pass information on to the whole group rather than one person at a time.
“My research meant that I was working at more than one terminal, or was occasionally in places where I couldn’t take disks or apparatus with me,” she says.
“The weblog meant a place to store ideas, links and references.”
