Abstract

This presentation will begin with a description of four key dimensions of Web 2.0. It will then explore these dimensions in relation to the current practices and types of online and web-based tools used in higher education settings. Universities need to provide students with an experience of innovative Web 2.0 services. Students are already conversant with the social networks created through Facebook, YouTube, and MySpace communities, and should find a web environment at universities that is familiar, not one that is top-down, administration-centric. The paper will conclude by proposing a simple model for understanding the roles of both learner and instructor, and the possible ways that the Web 2.0 environment impacts the activities of communication, collaboration, creation and assessment.
