In this webinar Holbrook Mahn, a professor at the University of New Mexico (UNM), demonstrated how he uses edWeb to create highly engaging learning communities for his higher ed courses, making learning much more collaborative for his students. Professor Mahn uses edWeb in his courses in the Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies department at UNM. Students post their work in collaborative communities so they can comment and review each other’s writings. He also uses edWeb to help his Ph.D. candidates connect and collaborate with other students around the world doing similar work.
