Abstract

As today’s students become the savvy users of social sites like Facebook and Twitter, educators are taking this opportunity to motivate learning and foster engagement through the use of Web 2.0 software such as classroom blogs. This study examines why social learning matters in higher education, and how can technology. The study demonstrates how to design and implement a socially enhanced classroom blog for higher education through a case study. The future study plans to evaluate the relationship between the use of social enhancements and student learning in terms of learning, social presence, satisfaction and community of practice.
