      Abstract

      Blogging can be used to enhance education by encouraging reflective practice. We present a study in which a final year HCI course was constructed around regular blogging activity. We discuss the role of blogs in providing a social mechanism for the student body and in acting as a conduit between classroom and practical examples. We analyze the blogs from a quantitative and qualitative perspective, and show that the students found it a useful and effective addition to their learning.
