What’s all this about a blog?

by billso on Tuesday, 23 January 2007

This is an updated ver­sion of an announce­ment I posted in my old blog on Jan­u­ary 12.

I’m using Word­Press, Blog­lines and RSS to dis­trib­ute course announce­ments and read­ings this term. Since I’m teach­ing courses on infor­ma­tion sys­tems, it makes sense to use sev­eral mod­ern sys­tems to man­age the courses.

This link is a good dis­cus­sion of what a blog really is.

This term, I’m going to be post­ing more links to pre­vi­ous arti­cles that I’ve writ­ten. You’re wel­come to search through my old Blog­lines blog and read pre­vi­ous arti­cles. Keep in mind that I change the assign­ments each term, and there will be some changes for Spring 2007.

We’ll dis­cuss RSS later in the course. RSS helps me dis­trib­ute course announce­ments with­out using e-mail or WebCT.

The next link retrieves a blog post I made in Sep­tem­ber 2006 that explains what RSS is.
