This paper discusses new features and the pedagogical implications of the integrated mapping and blogging (MapBlog) learning object developed at Empire State College. This interactive learning object follows previous work by the last two authors using a constructivist theory. The new version, MapBlog v2.0, implements the latest Google mapping technology combined with a Drupal platform to expand its blogging capabilities. During the last three years we have used the mapblog on 18 courses for a variety of pedagogical purposes. Here we identify four categories of mapblogs: external content, student-created content, static content, and thematic mapping.
