Academic credits for blogging???

Came across a link to the Building Learning Communities conference that was held in Boston in July. Like Navcon2K4 , this conference had a blog set up for participants.
Some debate has followed this, however, as participants could (for a fee) gain credit for their blog participation. This has sparked a lively debate over the issues to do with “Education for free vs. education for a fee”, and the question of whether conference participation like this is a valuable part of academic life???
For comments on this check out what Thomas Burn has to say, or refer to Sebastian Feidler’s blog where this discussion appears to have started.

  1. Derek, just trying to fathom how these sub-categories actually work but have to say I am a bit puzzled by them really. Do all messages simply pile up into a central column but categories allow your readers to sort and view certain messages from the central pool ? Hmmm.
