This is a perfect an example of adding value to a network. Following a blog may seem like a little thing, but, as the most successful NCAA basketball coach of all time used to say, "It's the little things that make the big things happen."
Teanna has demonstrated several important concepts worth noting:
- If you don't know how to create or follow a blog, you now know at least one peer/colleague who does;
- By linking to her blog from this year's course (Teanna is currently studying American Literature with this year's Open Source Learning cohort), you can see some of the ideas and design choices she's already contributed to a network;
- Since we can see who's following the course blog, it will be easier to create study groups who can share & discuss the summer reading load.
