    Really appreciated this episode – specifically the “results” discussion about traffic and means of promotion. Would love to get more specifics. We’re having a cost-benefit debate on our end right now. Whether using our student workers to create blogs is a better use of their time than helping them create content for our larger (more visible) University channels?

    This is a very interesting topic and very popular as well. Higher education is changing the way that students are communicating in the classroom and with their instructor as well. Blogging is becoming a very strong way to communicate and this is around the world as well. Blogging and online education is changing the way student are learning and the old way of teaching is becoming the thing of the past. I am looking forward to the new wave that is taken place around the world.
