  9. 9. TU Graz LearnLand 4: Universitywide Blogosphere s based on ELGG (http: //e| gg. org) * phpl mySQL -i Various components
  10. 10. Research Question How can weblogs be used in Higher Education?
  11. 11. The Study at Lecture , ,Societal Aspects of Information Technology“ « Aim: Students of Informatics should get an overview how informatics influence daily human behavior. 6- Two groups - traditional versus blogging (n=44) «r Two blog contributions each week the whole semester
  12. 12. Didactical Concept 0 Distributed versus Compact 0 Self-Directed versus Instructed 0 Community versus Alone
  13. 13. Technical Concept in Administration Weblog a Community Weblogs for Each Topic a View “Feature” « Lecturing with student contributions
  14. 14. Discussion — the teacher‘s view a Ease of use as Digital immigrants — digital natives -s Amount of information -a Community feeling
  15. 15. Evaluation results I Question: Do you think that this concept is appropriate to work with a topic for a longer time? Answers: n=34; 34 studenst answered YES ~ The concept was very expedient, because i have to think about the topic again and again «I Yes, but i like to express once again: longer time . . it Yes, there is a big advantage: The blog can be used as knowledge archive
  16. 16. Evaluation results II Question: Describe very shortly the most positive aspect of blogging. Answers: n=34; 34 studenst answered YES 0 Reading and writing continously 0 You can see permanent new stuff 0 I noticed much more about a topic by using the blogging method instead of the traditional assay writing - The same topic, but many different perceptions
  17. 17. Evaluation results III Question: Do you think blogging is a possibility for the educational future? Answers: n=34; yes = 27 (79°/ o); no = 7 (21°/ o)
  18. 18. Evaluation results IV Question: Please tell us the biggest point of criticism about the blogging concept from your personal point of view. Answers: ~ The topic of blog must be , ,broad“, because after some time I found no new information anymore «I It is hard not to loose the overwie, because of the amount of contributions as Sometimes I recognize contributions, which were not well researched « Blogging once a week is stressful
  19. 19. Conclusion -+ Problem of Information overflow at Blogging leads to an ongoing learning process in More student-centered content
  20. 20. Endstatement Nowadays, we need to think about what we write and not how we write. Even more - how we start to write, reflect and express ourselves within a worldwide community.
