In this paper, the use of student blogs as an assessment tool is analysed to better understand how blogs could provide possibilities for and facilitate reflective peer-to-peer learning. The empirical setting comprised an online higher education course. Twenty three students were enrolled and wrote individual blogs. Data is the total amount of blogs and related comments published online. For the analysis the concept ICE (Ideas, Connections, and Extension) (Fostaty Young, 2005) was used. The students expressed ideas, connections, and extensions. The use of blogs as tools for formative peer-assessment in online higher education can enhance the students’ peer-to-peer learning through technology.
