Abstract:

Since 2008, Maggie McCullar has been using a Blogger blog to manage and teach her Spanish courses. In this interview, she explains that "A blog opens up more of a daily dialogue with the students rather than just having some files online." Her blog allows her to quickly post course documents and learning resources, make announcements, and share a variety of media such as photos, videos and sound files with her students. She chose Blogger because it is easy to use both for herself and her students, especially since students are already familiar with this technology.
