International Blogging

Online Submission
As blogging has become a very popular media form for students in the informal classroom, educators are also using this to try to improve students' communication and English skills in the formal classroom. Why more instructors are not using blogging in postsecondary education in the attempt to improve student formal classroom communication and English skills? Since blogging is one of the most popular forms of media, educators can use this type of forum for class instruction. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the effectiveness of blogging in postsecondary education. The research question addressed to what extent blogging can be used to improve postsecondary education between students and instructors. A literature review was conducted through Google Scholar to locate scholarly articles and textbooks to support the use of blogging. The population for this study included college students and mature authors worldwide who wish to participate in the blog sites. Data collection came from student and researcher dialogue, and information the blog sites provided describing their sites. The results revealed that the literature supported the benefits of blogging in postsecondary education. The results of this study could help instructors recognize how blogging can improve communication and English skills among college students if used properly.
