Research shows better learning when students use sites and sounds

This article and supporting research explains why it is important for instructors to implement blogs and wikis into course projects. It's not just about the bells and whistles folks...

One qualitative study, which surely won’t be welcomed by manufacturers of basic word processing software, found that students who create and edit documents using Web-based collaboration tools include more complex visual media in their assignments — and come away with a better understanding in the process. Another ongoing experiment finds, with statistical significance, that instructors can be more effective in grading students’ work if they record their comments directly into documents as audio.
