Educause Learning Initiative Discovery Tool: Guide to Blogging



What is a blog?

from the New Tools Workshop Wiki (Please visit the Blog page for a breathtaking array of resources.)


A blog is a website, maintained by one or several people, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. (Wikipedia) Many blogs include a variety of embedded widgets (little program applications) in their blogs including interactive maps, calendars, videos, slides shows, etc.
