  10. 10. 09/06/16 10 Based on our findings, we can conclude that blogging as a virtual co- learning environment in the context of an international course is meaningful and relevant. More than 76% of students agreed that the use of the information and communication aids during the course supported their learning. More than 71% of students expressed the feeling that the new social media tools studied during the course could also be used later in their studies or working life. Blogging, as a collaborative learning environment, is also useful due to its cumulative nature. Students can learn from the earlier year’s students’ pages. In parallel, students can effectively learn from each other. This study offers one possible blueprint for experiments for teachers who plan to include social media tools in their course implementation To Conclude
