UBC Blogs can be used to build a course website, allow group authoring on a blog, provide peer review of authored content (editing with comments), provide class webspace development (adding annotated links/building a shared resource for a class), and provide a personal portfolio for students, faculty and staff (upload media – slides, video, images of your artwork).
