The report is an overview of lessons learned from six semesters of incorporating Web 2.0 technologies into three levels of university coursework. Teacher Education classes at Lipscomb University’s undergraduate, graduate, and also the undergraduate adult studies level were studied, concerning the expressed comfort levels that the students felt when working with these new technologies, both prior to and after the completion of their respective courses. Despite the fact that the sampling groups were small, trends were noticed that seemed to match studies available from other research. Despite the hype that surrounds many of the Web 2.0 tools today, the majority of prospective and also current teachers still lack experience in these realms. The primary focus of this study includes blogging, wikis, and Google Docs. However, several other tools were also surveyed.
