Weblogs in the Classroom 

"After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is in books. The true university of these days is a collection of books."  - Albert Camus

A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. The usage of the blog is to widen the conversation beyond the confines of just the classroom.

Web logs (blogs) provide a communication space in which teachers may utilize with students whenever there is a curriculum need to develop writing skills, share ideas, and reflect on work being undertaken in the classroom. Therefore, the benefit of using blogs is to support students' guided learning discovery, build community, and, therefore, increase students' comprehension.
