Abstract: An experiment on enhancing collaborative learning has been conducted with a first phase from 2008-2011 and a second and current phase from 2012 and onwards. During the first year each student on an international Summer School on e-learning was required to build a blog as a personal and collaborative thinking and discussion tool. This proved successful, but slightly too demanding for the time-on-task. A secondary approach has been developed that also caters for mobile clients. This was tested and evaluated for the first time in the summer of 2012.
