Going Digitial

As the new semester begins, consider trying something new in your class.  Blogs and Wikis are great tools for encouraging student collaboration and creativity and getting students more engaged in the learning process. Try replacing a traditional research paper assignment or class project with a digital one, using one of these tools.  Below is a video tutorial with instructions on how to use these tools.  If you are using one now, let us know how it works for you!


Zotero is a free, easy-to-use research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze bibliographic data and related research materials.
