Blogs (Web Logs)

From ElateWiki


Blogs (web logs) are persistent online "diaries" based around particular professional topics, personal interests, or personalities. These are used in work places as a way to capture both explicit and implicit knowledge, and to make these available to a broader public (or to a restricted audience). Blogs may be shared with multiple authors.

Blogs are interactive, to a degree. Readers may post to blogs. They may subscribe to a particular blog through RSS-feeds (really simple syndication) to stay updated on the contents.

Blogs in Education

Web logs are used in education to capture learner ideas and writings. These may be shared blogs with all learners and the instructor(s) as co-creators.

Blogs have been used in numerous ways--to co-create fictional societies or to archive research information or to evolve shared projects.
