All educational technology needs to be fit for purpose, and the supposed ‘blog’ tool inside many proprietary learning management systems (LMS) is not. For example, a popup description in the Blackboard LMS says that “Blogs are an open communications tool for Students to share their thoughts.” This is a misapplied description. The LMS is simply not an open platform and cannot, by definition, host a blog.
