Abstract

Educational blogs are a sub form of weblogs. For many years in the past and possibly for some in the future, it has been hard for bloggers to agree on a term that best describes weblog; they are continually re-defining and debating the correct term to illustrate this genius invention. However, the typical definition of weblog which is commonly used is that a weblog is a live journal or application which can be updated immediately without any problems. Blogs can range from all sorts of things such as, a diary of personal events or thoughts; a list of fascinating websites; a list of exciting computer games and so on, the list is endless, it allows individuals to communicate about certain topics of interest. In specific educational blogs have brought about great changes in tutoring today. This paper examines the usage of blogs in education.
