Abstract

Results from this initial study have given the lecturers greater insight into how to develop the interactive on-line component of a new combined pre-service first year Education paper. The move to a Moodle virtual learning environment provides greater opportunity to use a wider range of Web 2.0 tools that have the potential to encourage constructive learning practices within a collaborative learning community. Follow-up research will explore the use of wikis and forums within a whole cohort of first year teacher undergraduates.
