The lecture “Social Aspects of Information Technology” has a long tradition by using new didactical scenarios as well as modern e-Learning technologies. After using a blogosphere one year ago, this year microblog channels help to expand the traditional lecture. Students choose whether they want to participate in a blogging/microblogging group instead of using conventional methods called Scientific Writer/Scientific Reviewer. This study addresses the question whether this method can change the learning outcome into a more reflective one. Furthermore, peer-reviewing groups judge the quality of essays and blog contributions. In this paper we examine if microblogging can be an appropriate technology for assisting the process. This publication comes to the conclusion that an amazing potential and a new way to work with information is opened when using microblogging. Students seem to be more engaged, reflective and critical in the same way as they presented much more personal statements and opinions than years before.
