Blogs’ flavours

What you’re doing with them

Since blog systems provide tools for readers and authors of blogs to interact, it can help fuel discussion – especially useful in the context of higher education.

Currently, UBC is using weblogs:

  • as personal logs/journals to keep track of work/learning activities
  • as digital photo albums
  • as potential e-portfolio tools
  • as course web pages, encouraging discussion and collaboration
  • as private management and communication tools for large campus groups, administrative teams, and communities of practice
  • to easily update online newsletters
  • to keep a collection of useful, searchable links

We’re currently using WordPress MU publishing system to create and maintain blogs.
