Students' Lived Experience Of Using Weblogs In a Class: An Exploratory Study
Association for Educational Communications and Technology Annual Meeting,
Recently, attempts have been made to use Weblog and other personal webpublishing technologies to support individual and social reflection in higher education. Due to Weblog's highly individual and reflective nature, students' experiences and perceptions of the technology and practice is of primary importance in furthering its educational use. In this phenomenological study nine participants, who maintained Weblogs in a graduate course, were interviewed. Initial data analysis indicates that participants found Weblogs helpful for learning, reflecting, and building a sense of community. However, participants expressed concerns over the lack of structure for Weblog usage and the public nature of the reflective process.
