Sim, Jeffrey Wee Sing; Hew, Khe Foon
Educational Research Review, v5 n2 p151-163 2010

However, as this review indicates the research regarding blogs is largely self-report data (surveys, interviews) or content analyses.

Limitations of existing empirical studies are discussed and some directions for future research related to the use of blogs in higher education settings are suggested. (Contains 1 table.)
