Avoiding the 5 Most Common Mistakes in Using Blogs with Students

Ruth Reynard, Campus Technology, Oct 09, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

These five things are important, I suppose, but from where I sit they amount to reminding instructors to continue to hold students' hands even while setting them free. The five 'mistakes' are:
1. Ineffective Contextualization
2. Unclear Learning Outcomes
3. Misuse of the environment
4. Illusive grading practices
5. Inadequate time allocation
I think the writer meant 'elusive' and not 'illusive' - which leads to the largest danger of using blogs: students that can't (or won't) read.
