This study aims to build a Blog-based Character Education platform namely 1ÂCEBlog1Â, which has been constructed and developed to facilitate children's moral and social behaviors. The prototype of CEBlog consists of five functions: MSN Area, Media Area, Message Area, Link Area and Online Questionnaire. The participants were one class (n=33) of fifth graders from a public elementary school of the central Taiwan. A quantitative research method was adopted to analyse the data. Results showed that this tool with rich multimedia features was easy to interact, learn and use. Via this platform full of moral and social activities, students liked to reflect, discuss and solve their real-world problems. Positive results are also found in respect to CEBlog usage, satisfaction, learning motivation and effects. Finally, the authors encourage teachers and educational administrators use the platforms for character education like CEBlog to instruct children for understanding and facilitating their character development.
