Blogs, Journals and Wikis

Blogs, Journals and Wikis give students the opportunity to share and construct knowledge. Students can benefit from comments from peers and the instructor as they interact, collaborate, and share information, resources, opinions, and ideas. These communication tools provide the opportunity for instructors to build rich assignments and offer another way for evaluating students. Blogs, Journals and Wikis can be essential tools you can use to offer students constructive comments, guidance, and assessment.
