Said blogging assignments were useful in learning course material :
“…Instead of sitting back and reading a chapter we were able to research and learn in a more hands-on way. We were able to apply our knowledge on the topic in a real world scenario.”
“The library module was essential. I would not have been able to figure out how to use and access the vast resources that UCF has available without the module.”
Classroom discussion boards have a "training-wheels" feel to them. Students generally do not take those as seriously as they would the blogging assignments simply because they are not attached or related to the real world.
