Weblog or Blog is common for the people in the world nowadays, including who works in the education field. People use it because of the easiness. Some of lecturers use it to share their class meeting material to their students. Others use it to share their documents or presentations of research and workshop. They also can upload the multimedia contents to the Blog for describing the knowledge more detail. However, the Blog features are not the same with the Learning Management System (LMS) features. The LMS software usually provides the facility to do the eLearning activities, such as giving a quiz to the students, sending the assignments to the lecturer, and grading the assignments. Blog does not provide those eLearning features. It needs additional elements/widgets provider to provide the eLearning facilities. By combining the eLearning widgets from several providers to the Blog, people should get the benefits from the easiness of using the Blog and easiness of providing eLearning activities. Presently, there is no widget provider who is really support eLearning activities to their Blogs. Users have to combine several widgets from different providers to give all the eLearning services in their Blog. This paper will explain the technical side to provide the eLearning supports for the Blog. The design of those supports should offer the facility to upload a course material, creating a quiz or an assignment, sending the answer, and grading the assignments. However, it must not change the characters of Blog which is easy to use by everyone.
