Abstract: There is ever-greater interest in the use of web technologies such as blogs in higher education. This study was designed to identify the perceptions held by students regarding the process of learning and interacting with their co-students through using blogs as part of their higher education experience. Twenty, 5th-year students, 12 male and 8 female, studying for the Sciences of Physical Activity and Sport degree took part in the study. Each subject was interviewed by two interviewers and recorded on audio using a conventional tape-recorder. A descriptive analysis was carried beforehand, the statistics used for this consisted of frequency analysis distribution. After grouping by categories, the answers were analysed and classified by factors. Eighty-five percent of the subjects stated that the creation of the blogs had helped them in their learning process. Seventy percent believed that e-learning facilitates learning. Ninety percent stated that the blog helped them to acquire more knowledge, and 100% agreed that their relationships with their co-students had increased considerably. These results could underline the positive value of using blogs within teaching processes for university students studying sports sciences.
