The purpose of this web blog (i.e. "blog") is to locate the up and coming computer technologies that are or may be useful in higher education.
In addition, we may well be reminding people of the old and tested programs that are underused and should be looked at in a new light. You can teach an old dog new tricks - unlike certain gophers we know....

Thanks so much for getting this started Barb!
I am curious about how faculty are using blogs for teaching and would love to hear from others about their experiences. I am really new to the whole concept of blogging, and eager to learn how I might use this as a meaningful learning tool in my classes. Currently I am teaching a teacher education licensure course, General Instructional Methods, that meets face-to-face twice a week. I also teach an online distributed education class on Educational Innovations and Technology.
My mother-in-law is currently teaching in China, and she uses a blog to communicate with the family back home. Pretty cool!
I would like to share the website for getting started on WebQuests for some of the other EDOGS. It is: http://webquest.sdsu.edu/webquest.html
and begin under "training materials".
Well if someone had asked me a couple of years ago if I'd be blogging away in late 2004, I'd said, "Why sure. People say I've been bloggy for a long time now." So, edogs must rule or something.
Hey, this is cool. It's as easy as Webx.
I'll share a favorite url that has EVERYTHING on it:
I'm just pasting in the url, so we'll see it if comes through as a hyperlink or not.
HI everyone! This is exciting to be blogging with all of you:) Thanks for the great resources Terrie and Susan! One of my favorite educational resources is ALI Virtual Field Trips at http://ali.apple.com/ali_sites/ali/vft.php
By the way, Karen Plass made a good point about linking the blog Barb started here and the one I started (after I posted my comment above) on blogging in education. The latter is at: http://blog.lib.umn.edu/hrallis/eblogging/
For some CSPAN programming on our Digital Future and a program on blogs on November 15th see the following URL:
There is a train coming down the tracks. You can be on the train or on the tracks - - your choice.
P.S. Why do blogs die?
