Blogger Case Study

To see an example of Blogger in use click on the following link http://www.developingcadcam.com/

This blog was set up to keep students informed of interesting and contemporary developments in school based CAD/CAM to support their studies. It was also used to brief the students about assignment work, provide links to supporting resources and to host links to their individual blogs through the use of a  ‘blogroll’. Students were able to view and comment (constructively….!) on each others work.

From the tutors point of view, it provided a developing record of student capability and a one stop shop for assessment purposes.
