Where I Get Blog Post Ideas

Experiencing eLearning

When I talk to people about starting a blog, they often state they don’t have anything to write about. They ask how I come up with ideas, especially when I’ve been blogging so long. I have a long list of blog topics to help me when I’m in a rut.

Class Blog Versus Class LMS

The blog book tour for The Gamification of Learning and Instruction has come to an end. That’s the great thing about social media, it provides an open forum. I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the tour. THANK YOU!

Blogs and Community

Tony Karrer

I just read Nancy White's Blogs and Community – launching a new paradigm for online community? Truly a great article on how blogs build community. Her description of a topic centric community really helps you to think about the loose community network that gets created by blogs. The article also pointed me to a couple of interesting related pieces: What's Better to Build Community: Blogs or Forums? Compares conversation in blog world vs. forums.

I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. They could also do it as comments on a blog. So, I'm trying to figure out what's going to be the right software / service to adopt, but I'm also trying to think about the differences in: Forum / Threaded Discussion / Group Examples are Google Groups and Yahoo Groups.
