The eLGG Experience

I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the buzz around eLGG, and the more that I think about social networking, our students, and retooling classrooms for the future, the more these two elements (eLGG and our challenges) seem to be coalescing in my mind. Yet I still have questions.

I’m playing around with eLGG now, but have to admit that I am underwhelmed. It’s a basic blogging system, with the ability to create communities, upload files, attach files to your blogs, and a sundry of other features, and that the basis of the product is electronic portfolios. But I’m afraid that I don’t entirely get it — at least to the degree that the buzz implies. The thing is that I’m not really sure if I’m missing something in eLGG, or I’m too old to understand the whole online social community experience.

If you can help me to better understand what eLGG is about, please post a comment. I’d love to have a single blog that I can point people to in order to read a conversation about this potentially important learning service. Please give examples…
