International Journal of Web Based Communities Issue: Volume 5, Number 4 / 2009 Pages: 528 – 542 URL: Linking OptionsThe tagblog: exploring social web user contribution to encourage students to actively engage in learning contentMarkus Heckner A1 and Silke Schworm A2A1 Media Educational Science, University of Regensburg, Germany.A2 Media Educational Science, University of Regensburg, GermanyAbstract:After leaving the lecture hall, students hardly reflect about the lesson’s contents. To foster learning, the lesson content should be reorganised, elaborated and critically reflected. Tagging and blogging offer the opportunity to actively engage students in follow-up course work. This paper presents the results of a case study exploring the use of a social web application to encourage student contributions within the context of an undergraduate university seminar. The tagblog combines blogging, tagging and rating as three forms of online user contribution on Web 2.0 to develop a shared, emergent group knowledge repository. Blog posts, tags and comments are analysed to examine how user contributions reflect the active processing of learning content.
