I am teaching a course entitled "Race & Visual Culture in U.S. History" this semester and have been looking for a blogging platform that offers a strong visual element. For this reason, I'm considering Tumblr but I have not used the platform much. I'm wondering if any other scholars/users have used Tumblr for teaching purposes, and if so, if you could comment on elements you liked/disliked about the platform? How did you find that students responded to Tumblr?
If you've used it for a course and wouldn't mind sharing your URL, I would love to see your site!
Thanks so much,
