The experience is so much more engaging and real than the paper gathering exercise of old!”- Mel “Students can access each others' blogs through the links on our blogs, and that means we can share good practice amongst them. We've found it all works well, although we're lucky I think in that we've persuaded our college to allow students access to blogger in the Media classrooms”. -Marion E-community comments
