And we're off....

Our class of 21 students is setting up their blogs this week - lots of sports topics ... also fashion, food, humor, tv, film, etc. This is a journalism class, so we have some ground rules, which I will post. Sticking to journalistic standards while also experimenting a bit - getting a chance to do some opinion writing, write reviews, etc. I'm starting to add the links to student blogs off to the right. I'm impressed with how some people are already loading up their own photos, making their own graphics, tweaking the code to customize their blog, etc. I'm hoping this semester to play around with a bit of podcasting - loading up some audio to the blogs. Today we looked at CommandN - this great tech news Web TV program based in Toronto-a good example of what you can do with a blog and some multi-media tools.

By the end of the weekend, I should have everyone's blog linked up from here.
