Yes, the students are blogging again. 😉 The semester has started and my students are getting into the blog ‘thang’ again.
Tonight, I released the seniors on you and we started taking the steps to get their blogs up and running. mySQL databases will take about a week to be returned to them from IT. (Yes, we do some things the slow way, here. But, that’s ok.) Then, they will install and configure their own WordPress blogs. Until then, they are joining our wonderful contributors at MarcomBlog.com and a few other sites.
For instance, they are undertaking a ‘case studies’ project at PRCaseStudies.com, a new CivicSpace blog/wiki/forum site I’ve set up for them. You might enjoy this one. Just wait until they finish their assignments: identifying all PR firm case study links and creating a catalog of sorts from those links. (My little way of getting them to read more case studies.) 😯
Tomorrow, the ‘Intro to PR’ sophomores/juniors will be off and blogging. They have a group blog, so their accounts will be active tomorrow night.
I’ll be pointing them to blogrolls of PR bloggers, too. So, be ready. 🙂
You’ll find links to all their blogs here.
This is, of course, another opportunity for me to invite any interested PR/Marcom professionals/educators to join us in this blogging journey. Accounts are available for you at MarcomBlog.com and/or PRCaseStudies.com. Comment here or email me if you’re interested! [Swap @ for (at) to email.]
