Abstract

This paper describes the design of a master-level course on the new generation of Web 2.0 tools that can be utilized in education and training. The design applied Kolb's model of experiential learning, incorporating specific activities and structures devised to represent each of the model's basic elements: experience, critical reflection, abstraction, and active experimentation. A random sample of the tools the students investigated, as well as some of their suggestions, ideas, and production during the course, is provided.
