Goals and sub-goals as tags in blogposts in MOOC´s like PLENK2010 for following progress?

This school year I made a natural science course in Blogger for my students.
I tagged the different posts (tasks) with the different goals for the course. This as an attempt to make the goals more clear for the students. And then I also made a tag cloud from the tags.

But what if it instead was a MOOC like PLENK? And if the students had their own blog/portfolio/PLE with their own goals and sub-goals? And if they then tagged each of their posts with the proper goal(s)/sub-goal(s)? And then made a tag cloud from it?

Would this make it easier to follow the progress and to assess?

Hi! Of course,http://linn-naturkunskapa.blogspot.com/ (it is unfortunately in Swedish) You find the tag cloud to the right if you scroll down
I also linked it above. You can´t see the students, just the web page, the adminstration and portforlios I manage in another system right now (not open)
