Abstract: 
The rapid growth of technology has made online tools
available for education. The ability to discern the
characteristics of these tools and to use them
appropriately for educational purposes has become
increasingly critical. Weblogs and discussion forums
are among those up-and-coming tools that have great
potential in supporting learning. They have both
common features and differences. They are therefore
not to be used in the same way for maximum
effectiveness. This article compares the affordances of
weblogs and discussion forums by following an EST
framework, one composed of three key components educational,
social, and technological. It also discusses
the implications that the affordances have on teaching
and learning.
