Monitoring Blog

posted 4 Jan 2011, 22:08 by Roderick Chia

Some students have been wandering how the instructor monitor so many blogs and give accurate assessment of their involvement?  Let me share with you my secret.

Remember that I instruct all of you to set the team blog and individual blog using Announcement template? The reason I need all to follow this instruction strictly is that under the Announcement template, every post is tracked by a RSS feed. There you'll see  Subscribe to posts for those page following this template. What I do is to subscribe to all this post in my Google Reader and group them under respective team. Each time a new post is submitted by any student, it will appear in my feed as unread and I'll know that I have unread post.  

Another tool I use is my beloved Android Tablet, Galaxy Tab by Samsung. I installed the free Google Reader so that I can monitor my feeds everywhere I go. Now I can start to comment directly to blog.  If students also used Google Reader, they can also subscribe to this lesson blog.

Have fun with technology and be efficient connected seamlessly to the virtual world.
