In an academic setting, blogs offer students and faculty a shared space for exchanging ideas, interacting with peers and expressing their point of view regarding a given topic.
Students enjoy active and peer to peer learning.

However, since blogs are maintained by individuals, they may be bias or misleading.
Blogs are an expression of the writers opinions and unlike chat rooms they are not mediated.
