Social networks in eLearning systems


24 October 2012

Join us on 24th of October for a CoCo Seminar by Daniel Burn titled "Social Networks in eLearning Systems"

One of the most striking changes in the use of the internet over the last decade has been the emergence of Social Networking Sites, websites whose primary focus is social interaction.

Most students attending University today are members of one or more social networking sites. Enormous learning benefits might be found by discovering ways of harnessing for education a tool this popular and attractive to students.

This presentation explores a study, in the early stages of data collection, which is building social networking tools into an existing virtual learning environment to explore how this might enhance learning.

Daniel Burn is a PhD student at CoCo lab. He has worked at the University of Sydney on eLearning software design and development for 12 years, developing eLearning tools for the Medical School and other Faculties.
