Today I took all of the students in my eighteenth-century novel course to the computer lab and had them all log in simultaneously to the Movable Type install I have running in my account on Jeff‘s server. They composed an entry each, saved it as a draft, published it, viewed it in the blogspace, then commented on someone else’s entry.
No glitches. Not a single one. I am stunned. I have never had such a flawless in-class experience with a piece of software. No one got stuck. No one became so confused they couldn’t figure out what they were supposed to do.
All this from free software.
