This post is for the final challenge of the March 2011 Student Blogging Challenge.
Two weeks was enough time for me and I think two or three weeks should be enough.
Subscription: Did you subscribe by RSS or email in order to get the posts as soon as they were published?
No, I just looked on the blog.
Student and class pages: How useful are these pages in the header of the blogging challenge?
I found them quite useful, and for homework in our class we had to pick a class blog to comment on off the class page.
Did you visit the actual challenge on the blog each week or did your teacher have a post on your class blog?
My teacher put a post on our blog linking to the blogging challenge blog.
Which challenges were the most useful?
The challenges that were the most useful are the ones that I had use a new tool or something that I hadn’t used before.
Which challenges were the most interesting?
Same as above
Are more tutorial type challenges needed? eg how to make a link in your post
No, but you could find a post on the edublogger blog to help because it is just full of tutorials.
Were the ‘Visit these’ posts useful?
Yes, they were especially if get stuck on a challenge
Were the challenges where you had to embed ie polls, cartoons, wallwisher etc interesting or could you not embed due to being a free Edublogs blog or a blogging platform that didn’t allow embedding?
They were very interesting, I especially like using xtranormal and avairy.
Were there enough chances to visit blogs from overseas and make links with other students/classes?
Yes there was hundred of chances to visit overseas blogs.
In my opinion I think the blogging challenge is a great Idea, and the wide selction is good so you can pick the one you want to do the most.
