• "Blog" is an abridgement of the term web log.
• "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
If a blog is more suited for showcasing student or faculty work, for the purpose of publicity, please contact Holly Camerota at College Relations. Examples of these types of blog are http://sata-vietnamblog.conncoll.edu/ (link now broken)
Blogging at Connecticut College is also supported by CELS, Admissions and Alumni Relations. Please contact the department most suited to your needs for blogging support. You may contact the Instructional Technology Team for assistance with blogs that directly support course curriculum.
To start a Blogger blog, go to this page: https://www.blogger.com/start. If you do not have a Google account, or a GMail account, you will be asked to start one.
This account will be different from your Google Apps for Education account, unfortunately, as the Education account does not yet support blogging.
"Blogs are frequently updated web pages on which authors post short comments about news items, interesting websites, their thoughts and more. Blogs are part of a nanopublishing revolution that allows individuals to express themselves to the world. Blogs are easy to create, easy to maintain and fun to read." (From Blogging 101, a good introduction)
At the current time, we are using either Blogger or the ConnCourse Blogging tool for curriculum support. Please contact Diane Creede or Frank Fulchiero for assistance and advice. If you would like a public blog appropriate for publicizing the College, or one of your activities at the college, please contact Holly Camerata in College Relations.
