Thus far, blogging for Inside Higher Ed has been an amazing experience. After 23 posts, I wanted to check-in with folks and give a bit more insight into my blogging process.

I have 3 days left at Oregon State University (OSU). I've been an academic advisor for more than 3 years and have accumulated a tremendous amount of knowledge about OSU's academic processes. Life as an academic advisor consists of a never-ending stream of academic regulations, registration functions, course planning, substitutions, petitions, overrides, mentoring, teaching, and questions. When I started at OSU in 2007, I knew very little about what it meant to be an academic advisor.

I usually have several different post ideas floating around in my brain at any given time. I try to select a topic that I think will generate a post that interests both me and my readers. I had planned on writing about something other than course catalogs again (I mean, it's not like they are that glamorous) and I apologize for writing about them so soon. However, there was one comment that got my attention. Greg, who I would assume has never read anything that I've ever written before, left a comment that I feel needs to be addressed.

Most web-based course catalogs that I have surfed through seem like they were designed using an original Commodore 64. As an academic advisor, I often have the "pleasure" of browsing course catalogs from schools all over the United States. I have yet to find a course catalog that has an intuitive interface. My experience as an advisor should theoretically provide me with some advantage when I'm perusing a school's course catalog as I search for course information. However, I can say without any hesitation that most online course catalogs need to be rebuilt and redesigned.

I received an email last week with "Get Ready for EDUCAUSE 2010" in the subject. Like a lot of the emails that I receive, I wasn't able to get to it until this weekend. The 2010 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is a month away so the email wasn't a priority. I finally got around to reading through the message and I must say, my excitement for this conference has increased.

It was announced today that Harrisburg University of Science and Technology would be conducting a "social media blackout" next week. Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and AOL Instant Messenger are going to be blocked for access by the campus network. My first thought: how did LinkedIn escape the blockade? And, do students even use AIM anymore? My next reaction was to look into sending a semi trailer packed with MiFi devices to Pennsylvania.
