Abstract

Blogs the most popular systems for authoring and managing micro-content have the affordance to become an integral part of teaching and learning processes as a vehicle for knowledge management. Open, flexible systems integrating blogs provide user-friendly, personalised micorlearning environments while ensuring ubiquitous access. This book concentrates on blog interoperability in the context of creating such an open space for learning and collaboration. As blogging is one of the most popular web-based forms of publishing today, there is a plethora of different blogging tools, feed readers, and aggregators, enabling information dissemination, filtering, and retrieval. Several different data structure and interaction standards emerged which makes integration a real challenge. This work presents the possibility of creating distributed microlearning environments basing on networks of integrated blogs, discusses problems of such an integration along with possible solutions, and proposes an architecture for loosely-coupled blog integration.
