This paper explores aspects of social technologies used within the context of e-learning in higher education and with adult learners. It re-examines an online learning environment in order to identify where a good opportunity might exist to include social and informal learning spaces and activities in formal learning environments and vice versa. It demonstrates how the results of this exploration were used to conceptualize a design framework and how the framework was used to design, develop and implement an online graduate course.
