Recently, learner participation is introduced for education because study effectiveness can be enhanced by participating, interacting and sharing. However, the spatial distance of e-learning makes obstacles to the interaction between teachers and learners. In addition, if the learning still remains the way of lecturing-scribing, the e-learning with learner participation cannot work with their advantages. In order to better effectiveness while applying learner participation in e-learning, a blog-based LRPBlog system is proposed. In the scheme, learner's loading regarding of platform operation is minimal since blog is one of the most popular Internet activities. For teachers, the hardware maintaining is unnecessary, so that the cost to develop LRPBlog is few. Furthermore, the mutual communications among whole partners can be achieved in very simply way. The experimental results show that the students in the class of LRPBlog-aided not only represent better effectiveness, but also win more in certification examination. Therefore, LRPBlog is adapted to enhance learning's participation in the e-learning environment.
