To Provide a Course Site or Host an Online Course

A blog can be used to host a course site (such as “23 Things” described early in this chapter or the “2012 Leadership Academy Class”) or to provide ongoing support for a particular course topic (Customer Service at Acme). As a course-hosting tool you can use the blog to post weekly assignments or readings, links to videos or articles, or links to “lessons” placed on YouTube or in PowerPoint shows.
For anything you post, you can ask for learner reactions, reflections, arguments, or counter-ideas. Learners can then comment to you or to each other. You may further invite reactions, reflections, or ideas for applying concepts to the work setting.
