Weblogs are the electronic, multi-media enabled marble composition books of the 21 century. Information is added (posted) daily, weekly, or less often depending on the project or author’s purpose. Entries are usually displayed in reverse chronological order, with the newest information on top. They allow users to express their thoughts or share information, receive feedback and or criticism, and then assist in the construction of new knowledge or understandings. Weblog users can add content to the web as easily as logging into and sending an email. These on-line journals can incorporate multimedia such as: digital pictures, digital video, sound clips, electronic documents, tag boards, blog polls, and much more. Weblog users are even able to use cell phones and PDA's to moblog (moblogging) information to their weblog. Weblogs are sure to impact the future educational landscape and effect how students learn. - Micheal Lackner
