In this screencast we show you how easy it is to create a course blog that automatically pulls all your students' posts into a single page. This uses a simple tag search using the new Blog Search feature of the Blogs at Penn State. To make this work we are operating with a couple assumptions. Let's look at those:
- Each student in the class must have a blog built using the Blogs at Penn State.
NOTE: Each student will need to apply for personal webspace before they will be able to create a blog. (see instructions for creating a blog)
- You have asked your students to use a common tag when writing ... in this case we are using the shared tag, "ist110" for all course posts
