Abstract

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a hybrid tool for teaching advanced undergraduate writing courses at the University of Southern California (USC). This USC “blogfolio” is a Web-based blog and digital portfolio platform that is intended to facilitate students’ skills in research, writing, and critical thinking; enhance students’ information sharing, reputation building, and personal expression; and advance students’ academic and career goals. The authors review and synthesize articles and theories relevant to educational blogging and digital portfolios as they examine the impact of the USC blogfolio on student learning and professional development based on data collected from surveys, blog entries, and server activity logs.
