In Hong Kong, the New Senior Secondary (NSS) Curriculum has been implemented in September 2009. Besides the core subjects, students have to show their abilities in Other Learning Experiences (OLE). Students are supposed to spend 15-35% of the learning time which is far from the scopes of formal learning in the previous curriculum. To help students to build up their profiles in senior secondary years with Web 2.0 technologies, teachers could make use of e-portfolios or other Web tools. Teachers can facilitate students by introducing a blog system as an e-portfolio for the creation of Student Learning Profile (SLP). With the highly available WiFi networks and affordable price of mobile devices, students will be able to access and develop their blogs at any time and in any place.
