How would you convince a colleague that it is/isn't worthwhile to learn to use blogs (etc.) for teaching/learning? Provide at least one argument likely to convince a faculty colleague to try to do so. Provide at least one argument likely to convince a faculty colleague NOT to try to do so. [If you prefer, provide the arguments for an "academic administrator" or "student" or "instructional designer" instead of a faculty member.]
