For an A to Z of E-learning this is the easiest letter to fulfil. I could write a book on blogging alone. Indeed it's about time I stopped accumulating and writing on blogging and instead my bit to push it as a platform for education good.
- As a learning journal or e-portfolio
- To share research
- To build and retain an audience
- For professional credibility
- For a personal and professional to create and keep a social media presence
- To connect with others.
- To find 'like minds'
I did a Mindmap too, some 24 reasons why an academic should blog, and another one for students. Even if you post privately there is value, that grows over the weeks and years, to have so much content logged, tagged and in one place.
If you have some other 'Bs' to add to an 'A to Z of e-learning' please offer them.
