    Digital Diaries as vehicles of assessment in HE (2007) 

    Using digital and paper diaries for learning and assessment purposes in higher education: a comparative study of feasibility and reliability – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education

    The incorporation of diaries and journals as learning and assessment vehicles into programmes of study within higher education has enabled the further growth of reflection, creative writing, critical thinking and meta-cognitive processes of students’ learning. However, there is currently little research that aims to compare how different types of diary are used and for what specific learning and teaching purposes, so, with this in mind, a study was carried out to investigate digital diary use within a group of undergraduates, to some of whom the authors
    allocated Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), which they used to contribute to a blog (digital diaries), and to some of whom hard-backed format (paper diaries) were given.
