The use of emerging e-learning technologies to build lifelong learning solutions is on the rise in academic settings. However there is a need to further explore these technologies in educational contexts and find novel ways of combining them in unit design. This paper presents our experience of incorporating a combination of blogs, social bookmarks, and podcasts in teaching a Web programming unit. An iterative action research methodology has been adopted to carry out the study. The study outcomes are encouraging in terms of usage and acceptance of incorporated technologies. They fulfil the basic objectives of the study and highlight the key areas of improvement for follow up studies.
