Prepare a similar figure of a LE but from your (STUDENT'S) perspective. Use different colours for positive and negative factors and upload it to your Student Blog.

Then compare traditional (face-to-face) and digital learning environments focusing on the criteria (See the table).

Discuss the answers and tray to come to an agreement. Why do you think your fellow students' experiences are different? When you are ready, add it to your Student Blog. You can add images as well to illustrate your point.
