Abstract

Since 2009, the Center for Adult Education in Antwerp, Belgium, has a multimedia-programme in their 'Second Chance to Learn'-department. The practical subjects (like video-editing photography, webdesign, etc...) have since evolved from being 100% classroom-based education to blended learning (50% F2F, 50% distance). Over the course of these three years we have tried to find a practical and motivational way to use blogs as an E-Learning tool. This process has had its ups and downs. In this paper I share not only my personal experience with this, but also how my students experienced the blog as an (E)-learning tool. I include some tips and tricks on using freeware for blogging and on how to provide students with motivational and to-the-point feedback.
