Mohamad Hisyam Mohd Hashim

Abstract


In this paper, we describe the introduction of blogs to a class of Masters in Technical and Vocational Education students taking the MBE 1223 Statistics in Education module in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). The purpose of the analysis is to elaborate on the perception of the participants towards blogs before, during and after training regarding the usefulness of their class blog. For the purpose of this study, participants will be required to handle their weekly reflective journals or their learning logs using their class blogs instead of handing them in hard copy weekly. Participants will be encouraged to blog and to provide feedback to their classmates’ comments. Respondents will be required to reflect on lessons weekly and to write their reflections on the class blog. They were also required to reflect on their use of the technology in their module.
