Posting for Points: Edublogs in the JMC Curriculum

Singer, J. (2008). Posting for Points: Edublogs in the JMC Curriculum. Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, 63(1), pp. 10-27. doi: 10.1177/107769580806300102


Despite the spread of blogs in the media and in academia, little scholarly work has explored their use within the journalism and mass communication curriculum. This study, based on incorporation of blogs in 10 classes over five semesters -- undergraduate and graduate, skills and conceptual – examines student use of the format in relation to theories of social and blended learning. The findings suggest that although students tend to approach blogging as yet another assignment, the blogs do facilitate their engagement with the material and one another.
