  • 11. What my students said about group blogging...
    Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011
    The majority of support I received [for my project] was through the blog, and it was beneficial to get comments from peers about ideas and thoughts.

  • 12. I was able to contact all of the other members of the group through one method, and I was also able to monitor the rate at which they were progressing with their research to make sure I wasn't behind!
    Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011
    Because it was a group blog I felt it was more group support.  I was helped by a number of people which made the support feel more reliable.

  • 13. Honestly I found it quite helpful as I re-read what I had written and it helped clarify my thoughts into what I actually wanted to say.
    Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011
    I didn't use it extensively but when I did […] it helped clear my thought processes.

  • 14. It allowed me to really look at the different areas of my project and to focus on the steps I needed to complete the project, looking at it in small chunks instead of one large piece of work.
    Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011
    I could use it and access it from anywhere, it was like an online memory map!
