Despite advancements in web technologies that enable extensive aesthetic control and interactivity, very little had changed over the span of nearly a decade with respect to the layout and aesthetic of e-portfolios created in a course focused on preparing pre-service teachers for the use of digital media and open source technologies. By shifting from web page creation using an HTML generator to a blogging platform, students were able to develop interesting electronic portfolio design and content in a condensed time period. Four issues related to this shift to blogs are discussed: (1) Current blogging and e-portfolio research supporting the selection of blogging infrastructure for portfolio development, (2) Process necessary to make blogging infrastructure accessible to students, (3) Evaluation of blogs as infrastructure for portfolio development, and (4) Evaluation of blogs as a pedagogical tool for technology curriculum (open source programming).
