We're investigating the use of student blogs for admissions/recruiting. We're also looking the overall risk vs. benefit of allowing more open systems, maybe off of the main university site. Administration folk here have expressed trepidation about this idea of student-generated content.
1. Have you built an admissions blog or similar open publishing system that allowed student posts on public fora? If so, what is the URL(s)?
2. If you did create an admissions/recruiting blog with student-generated content, did you compensate your students in any way to write posts?
3. Have you allowed comments on posts? If yes, did only you allow other students to comment? or also allow public comments?
4. Blogging platform used?
