My wife, needing to pick up a few credits from home to renew her certification while on her maternity leave/summer vacation, has just started a "Using Blogs and Wikis to Foster Literacy" class at URI. Jennifer rather pointedly doesn't read my or any other blogs, so we'll see how it goes.
Good news, they're using Will's book.
Additionally, you will need to have access to a computer that has PowerPoint version’97 or above to view the presentations. If you cannot hear the sound on them it is possible that the “wave” element of your volume is either on ‘mute’ or not turned up enough. URI’s servers are remarkably unpredictable, so please be patient with this process.
