Edublogs Are Go!

James Farmer, IncSub, Apr 21, 2005

Not a long article, but then again, the history of educational blogging that it described isn't long either. Good lists of the blogging pioneers and (more importantly) the educational blogging initiatives springing up at universities, including the one at the University of Calgary I just ran into last night (and which is now supporting Podcasting, courtesy of Drupal. And, as Farmer observes, it is significant that these initiatives are all based on open source or free blogging platforms. And it seems to me that just as innovation in web browsers didn't happen until we got the open source Firefox, innovation in learning management systems (which we haven't seen for five years or so) won't happen without open source learning support systems.
