The use of user-generated digital video posted on blogs, also known as videoblogs, is increasing with the advent of new hardware and software that allows people of various backgrounds and occupations to create their own professional videos. This is a new medium used often by students in secondary and higher education as evident in online sites such as YouTube and MySpace for personal reasons and presently by some instructors who use such video to instruct. Yet, the use of videoblogs is new overall to the educational community and little research is available on its use and effectiveness in the classroom and in an online environment. This paper will examine how videoblogging is used in educational institutions across grade levels, standard practices of educational videoblogs, how videoblogging ensures communication and interactivity within as well as outside of the classroom, how videoblogging influences students from diverse backgrounds in regards to multiculturalism, social class, and differentiated learning styles, and the sensitive issues educators and students need to address when using videoblogs, such as privacy and online classroom management.
