E-Performance Essentials

We-Learning: Social Software and E-Learning Part I and Part II By Eva Kaplan-Leiserson
"Although there are plenty of blogs about learning, and though blogs certainly contribute to learning, we haven’t yet seen examples of blogs being used deliberately as e-learning or even blended learning tools. That doesn’t mean they’re not, though, or that they won’t be soon. Collaborative blogs could easily replace asynchronous message boards; instructor and learners in a synchronous course could co-navigate to a blog as a learning aid and use it as a launch pad for a writing assignment or group project; learners could be asked to create their own blogs as an assignment for an online or even a traditional course.
