So today in my EIPT 5513 class (yes the Saturday of spring break!) I was showing Mr. Maxwell how to use OU Create. I realized I have blogged a lot in the last year and while it is not peer reviewed publication, it has served me well and I would encourage someone else to do it. It helps for informal writing, and also connecting with others on social media.
OU uses the create system to allow students to start their own wordpress blog and transfer the content when they graduate.
For this graduate student, it will help him meet his own personal professional goals. Isn’t that the purpose of higher education?
