Abstract

The use of blogs in teaching and learning in Nigeria is still at its infancy and a review in the student learning process has become pertinent due to numerous benefits that blogs proffer. Three hundred questionnaires were distributed exploring perceptions of students. Descriptive analysis was carried out in the analysis of data using thee Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. Majority of students were aware of blogs though they still had insufficient information of its use in learning, also students were more interested in the benefits of creative thinking, dissemination of information and ability to view pictures and videos of concepts as well as discussion with classmates. However privacy issues, solitary learning and insufficient information still limited the adoption of blogs in learning in Nigeria. There is a need for university administrators to create an enabling environment for intellectual exchange by aligning the university curriculum to promote creative thinking, collaborative learning and visualization of concepts in learning. Keywords: Blogs, Learning, Nigeria &
