    The collaborative works have been positioning itself as a good education. However, this methodology has the drawback of requiring almost always the confluence of the group in the same space.

    Blogs can play a role in learning skills. These skills fall into three categories:
    1. Information literacy. It's always easier getting information over the Internet. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find accurate information regarding reliability, relevance and timeliness. Quality criteria that play a role apply to blogs such as date, source, etc. As students work with blogs, they can experience how to deal with information.
    2. Social skills such as debate, peer review, self-reflection, handling criticism, showing respect for others, independent thinking. These can be trained by working on and respond to blogs. Blogs give everyone equal opportunity, something in a classroom situation is not always the case.

    You should have created a new topic instead of hijacking some other topic which isnt related to your subject. In any case, if you are Interested To do Master Degree Course, Then I will Suggest You Please Opt MBA after Completing your B.com Course. After B.com, MBA Is the best option for You, Since You are From Commerce Background, then MBA Finance Is best Field For You, So Please think about MBA Course.
