A class from the University of Missouri taught by Dr. Donna Strickland is called English 4040: Blogging in Theory and Practice. The outline shows that the class covers blog basics like setting up a blog and using blog search engines. Some of the other issues discussed in the class include the history of blogging, comments, blog ethics and anonymity. The class also has a mother blog that students contribute to as part of the class requirements. That trumps writing the lengthy essays one typically associates with college-level English courses.
