Advocates suggest that Course Management Systems can transform the higher 
education classroom into a more student-centered space. However, this has 
not happened. To achieve this goal more easily, some educators are turning 
to weblogs (“blogs”). This paper compares the educational potential of blogs 
and reports on direct experience suggesting that blogs can be a creative and 
interactive middle space between online and traditional classrooms.
