MY REACTIONS TO THE 4 SYNCHRONOUS TOOLS ARE:
Name of tool
ZOOM :WEB CONFERENCING(SUSIE)
A blog can be used to communicate ideas, sell something share, save events and pics and exchange and teach ideas ,so an educator,an artist,someone selling something, personal journaling.
Typically this tool is a used with a community, whether it is as a online course or in an online group and it encourages networking. Usually one person has an opinion about an event or experience and wants to share it with the group and gains support with comments.
A blog can definitely improve writing skills for someone, allowing also for more creative submissions and thoughts, instead of simply including a written paper,a blog allows for multi media and thinking outside the box and with the shortened responses afforded in a blog ,more students are apt to respond.
o Some creative ways this tool may be used to support distance education. Think outside the box. Look at your specific setting. How you may use the tool will vary from others in your group. It is great informal way to teach a class. Students feel less intimidated by responding in this way and it is like a virtual conversation, it can be made private or public and you can invite people to join and add images, videos and change the colors and fonts and a great designing tool.
