E-learning Blog by Blog

Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects. The Most common uses for blogging are personal using a personal web publishing forum.

But the most promising use of blogging is in the educational opportunities in corporations and institutes. Blogs are increasingly being used within companies and universities for educating students and employees.

Blog Technology

A hosting service is a Web site that will give you access to everything you need in order to create a blog. It will offer a form for you to enter your entries, tools that allow you to build a template for your blog, and access to some built-in frills.

A hosted service is the easiest and quickest way to start. Many blogging services allow new users to set up an account either for free or a nominal fee, and begin posting literally in a matter of seconds. Bloggers can either host the blog, just post on the blog.

Blogs are almost always architected as a core with plug-ins that add extra use to the core system. They use templates for the HTML and CSS for styling, so that changing the look of the page is a simple matter of changing the style sheet.

Blogging systems are so easy to use; it is easy rework or remove the “blog” features such as date and author listings, and set up a style sheet. The result looks like a regular web site, but is much easier to use than traditional editors
This makes blogging easy to update and maintain. The most unique aspect of blogging is pinging, which involves a person posting a comment about someone else's work on their own blog.

For these reasons blogs are a popular tool in the e-learning process.
