Bloggers provide an opportunity to help enhance community building and promote that can help increase the flexibility of learning while motivating students to actively participate in their learning. By enabling peer-to-peer interaction, Bloggers can support the essential communication needed for team members to share given tasks while creating a sense of ownership and progress. In this investigation bloggers were designed, with a view to promoting clear and transparent communication between team members. In this study, bloggers were integral to learning online and also supportive of the social processes of learning by enabling peers to easily see how their team members were performing tasks. The combination of peer-supported teams and tasks designed for self-direction supported by blogging were the key design elements, and supported the learning outcomes of collaboration, social responsibility and decision-making with a view to helping learners attain essential project management skill
