Name: Michael Wilder Institution: Western Washington University Topic: Multiuser Blogging as a an Educational Innovation Description: 

A combination of the open-source blogging software, WordPress, with the free BuddyPress plugin, creates an environment in which students can create academic publications with a full-range of contemporary word-processing features (including the addition of images, video, and podcasts), share resources, work collaboratively, and comment and evaluate each other's work. At the same time, this system allows students to have direct control of their learning environment (through customized themes), to participate in Facebook-like social interactions ("friending," "liking," commenting, user profiles), to integrate social media (such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Flickr), and to collaborate (via document sharing, group support, and wikis). In addition this educational practice allows mobile access (via smartphones and tablets) as well as badges and gamification.
