Assessing Weblogs in College Writing Classes

“I consider my using weblogs in class this summer to be, for the most part, a failure. I’m glad I tried it, but my students didn’t enjoy blogging. I even thought to myself, at some points in the semester, that maybe blogging is something someone should do because he or she wants to do it; in other words, it should be more organic, not a class requirement. But I don’t really believe that.” Clancy RatliffAssessing Weblogs in College Writing Classes (KairosNews)
