Web Logs ("Blogs") and "Wikis" on Electronic Portfolios


A web log, or blog, is an online journal that encourages communication of ideas. Below are a few links to learn more about blogs:

Below are links to several blogs where the authors have discussed e-portfolios. I decided to experiment with my own blog, to explore some of my thinking on the use of e-portfolios for learning (NOT assessment). If you have a Blog that focuses on electronic portfolios, e-mail me and I will add it to this list.

A wiki is a quick way to create and share ideas through web pages that can be edited with only a web browser (the name comes from a Hawaiian term that means "quick"). There has been a resurgence in popularity of this 10-year-old technology, especially in the corporate sector, "as a speedy way to collaborate without having to endure endless back-and-forth e-mail exchanges or dealing with complex and expensive groupware" (Business Week Online). Just click "edit page" link on a wiki page, and you can update its contents using a WYSIWYG editor.
