The Human BioNet and your Blog Portfolio
Your first blog portfolio posting on the Human BioNet showing you are registered for the class, should include the following:
An image that you choose to represent yourself. It might be a picture, an avatar, something from your home, your family, whatever, but you must post an image
Even if you post some of this information in your "Profile" on your "MyPage," please be sure you also make a blog entry with this information so that I am know you are able to post images and text to a blog. Let me know if you have any problems doing this. It must be done by the end of the first week of class.
If you have not received an e-mail invitation to join the Human BioNet and set up your own "My Page" where you will post your blog portfolio please let me know.
Each unit of the course will include the following blog postings.
Two compendium reviews, one for each of the two main topics in that unit
Results of on line lab exercises
Lab Project Presentation with photos
Ethical Issues Essay
Self and Unit Evaluation
Information and guidelines for each of these postings is provided under the Assignments column on each of the course Unit main pages. I will provide video or written comments on all your postings at the end of each unit.
After the completion of each unit, I will also open a Discussion Forum on the main page of the Human BioNet where you will post some of your ideas developed in the ethical issue essay for that unit....more on this later.
Be sure you save your own copy of every blog posting that you do. I recommend doing the postings in a word processing document and then copying them into the blog. You can save these on your own computer, your campus "M" drive, a c.d. or a thumb drive. Be sure you have these backups, just like you would for a paper assignment that you turn in. "My blog got damaged or erased" will not be an acceptable excuse for not having your assignments posted on time.

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.
You would know in words that which you have always known in thought.
You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams.
And it is well you should.
--Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
