I participated in my first online conference last week - HigherEdBlogCon. I co-authored two presentations - one with Ethan Watrall on an online web resource we are building (with a team of undergrads and support from our college) on blogging in the classroom, which is available here; and a second presentation titled "An empirical test of blogging in the classroom" which is based on the data I collected last Fall. Although I wasn't too keen on the lack of immediate feedback while recording the screencast, the comments have been useful and I am less skeptical than before of the possibilities for these kind of events.

My posts have been sporatic at best and I am going to remedy this.
