Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Using web logs for learning
At Sloan we've launched a new (and non-public, alas) "class notes" site where alumni can post updates about themselves. We think of it as a sort of living version of the monthly or yearly newsletter. There is one weblog per class. Members of the class of '99 are invited to post to the "Class of '99 Notes" site and so on for the other classes. One of the goals of this system is to bring a greater sense of connectedness to the alumni community by making one another's presence more immediately felt. It's a bit early to measure our success -- the site has only been up for a month --- but in that time we've received submissions from classes ranging from '59 to '99.
On a lighter note you might find Room 209 (http://209.typepad.com/) interesting.
