Instead of the traditional daunting, demoralizing stack of printed papers destined to be abandoned and forever forgotten by their student authors, I face a rolling series of blog post installment waves from my co-philosophers. What's lost in scholarship (if anything, frankly) is more than replaced in interest, visual appeal, and collaborative possibility (a possibility I may have to actualize, in the future, by making student comments on one another's work mandatory and not simply-but-repeatedly requested).
It still takes lots of time, cloud-grading, but feels less like a trudge and more like idea-surfing. I'm diving in. No excuses!
