Digital Commons Kicks off Spring Semester With 23 New Blogs

The Digital Commons developers are gearing up for a productive semester of classroom blogs this semester. With 23 new blogs requested by staff members, the developers anticipate the progress of the blogs' usage in the classroom and the feedback of students and staff on their addition to the classroom setting. The new range of blogs that the staff have requested indicates the growing presence of blogging possibilities in the Georgetown community. From education, to government, to religion, blogs have been requested at this point in the semester by professors in 11 fields of study. CNDLS is looking forward to the opportunity to compare notes with professors on the many ways the blogs are functioning in their classrooms.
