the following classification of edublogs according to the role (instructor or student) played by the writer of the weblog is proposed:
Instructor weblog: weblogs written by instructors are mainly used as an additional
communication channel to share information with students. Instructor weblogs usually contain
course content, course management information, general commentary to all students about
their learning progress, etc.
Student weblog: weblogs written by students are basically learning weblogs or project
weblogs. A learning weblog is a learning diary that reports the learning experience,
both the learning content and the learning process.
Besides, a weblog can also be the result or the learning outcome of a subject.
Finally, a project weblog, often authored by a team of students, documents the project progress and findings.
