We have been “down,” at least as far as posting, for months. Honestly, the most recent post below was written back in January, and I thought it was posted (I edited it to include the paragraph about the Instructional Technology Conference, which is current). While I was at the conference and looking at the blog, I realized that the “I’m back” post didn’t post. Tried it again, and failed.
I’m pretty handy with PHP, but I just don’t have the time to troubleshoot right now. Fortunately, WordPress, the software that powers this blog, came out with a new version just a few days ago. Upgrading seems to have fixed the issue.
This blog will house several categories of posts. Watch how it develops. To be a “good” blogger, you have to blog frequently. I don’t know that I will be a good blogger, in that sense. The upside is that I will only post when I actually have something to say. There will be others in here as well, people who are conducting Conversation CafÃ©s or who otherwise collaborate with me on projects, so that will make it worthwhile to check back here. Use the Categories listing on the side to find the specialty you’re actually interested in.
This is a place for publishing ongoing discussions about some of the academic issues in which I’m involved, including Conversations CafÃ©s and Second Life use in education. Anyone can make comments, but you must register in order to be able to do so (this is just to cut down on comment spam). Let’s collaborate!
