Miami University, Middletown, Ohio is a computer campus, so opportunities for students to interact with each other outside of class are limited. Weblogs helps students know each other at a deeper level, Susan Baim says. Baim encourages students to include personal information on their web pages, which can include an electronic-mail address, location, college or university, birth date and interests. Like a threaded discussion in a course management system, weblogs can maintain an accurate, semi-permanent recorded dialogue.
