Being the Coordinator of the Journalism and Writing program at the university where I have been teaching for the last 11 years, one of the course I implemented was Blogging and Websites.
One of the standards for the course is that each student has to create and design a blog for starters, but then post minimally on a weekly basis, but more is encouraged.
The most difficult part about teaching this course is getting students to come up with somewhat original ideas that have not been trampled into the ground. Each blog has to be in English and must be directed to an international audience, specifically the ex-pats in Budapest or Hungary. Though this is not to say the information may not be of interest to others particularly those who are planning to travel here.
Here are the blogs. If you click on the name of each blog, you will be redirected to that actual blog. Let me encourage you to comment on the blogs you visit. Students need this type of feedback to encourage their writing.
