Abstract

This paper aims to investigate and evaluate the extent of adoption and use of Weblogs by students in their assessments during their Intermediate year of study at London Metropolitan University and to identify student attitudes towards Blogging and the characteristics of Blogging technology within a teaching and learning context. In addition, the extent to which Weblogs can help to develop a Learning Community shall also be investigated. Two student groups where involved in the research, one group studying a module called Planning & Management of Events, and the second studying Communications and Technology. Both modules incorporated the creation of an individual weblog as part of the student assessment for each module.
