Overview of iSchool Blogs

A blog or weblog is a Web-based tool that allows the blog owner to quickly publish commentary and other material on the Web in a journal format. The blog displays postings from authors in reverse chronological order. If the blog owner permits it, anyone can join the conversation and contribute a comment (response). No knowledge of HTML programming is required. Some blogs are password restricted and only those in the targeted group have access.
