Academics give lessons on blogs

A report on the BBc site looks at blogging in academia. Blogging lecturers say the technology provides them with easy online web access to students and improves communication outside of the classroom.
They mention the same History PhD student who was mentioned in a similar article in the Guardian, back in October. They also look at Warwick, though David Supple from Birmingham does raise a note of caution:
“This type of technology is very open and easy to instigate and that often means in the rush to use it, the bigger questions on the most effective ways to use the technology without creating legal and reputational issues for the institution are forgotten or end up being asked too late.”
