This week is all about Getting Started with our learning process by exploring blogs. You will be learning about what exactly a blog is, and see some great examples of how libraries and librarians are making use of this awesome technology. You’ll also be participating in a few fun activities using the WordPress blogging tool, such as creating your first blog entry. We’ll be using these blogs throughout the program to share reflections on the modules each week, and to communicate with questions and comments on individual blog postings.
