Abstract

The use of Web 2.0 in higher education provides for a number of
different possibilities. In this paper we look into the use of Web 2.0 as a
platform for social learning supplementing traditional teaching methods
such as lectures and on place group work. The findings are astonishing
revealing challenges such as the unknown genre of Web 2.0 for learning
and changed behaviors with relevance for the identity creation and
perception of others. The insight points to a number of issues of relevance
when Web 2.0 is integrated in design for learning.
