Track 2: Using Vyew for Collaborative E-Learning Henry Hon. Web 2.0 is changing education and corporate training applications by allowing instructors and students to collaborate online together in real time or separately over time. Rather than one-to-many methodologies such as lectures, textbooks and video-on-demand, Web 2.0 collaboration provides a rich environment for instructors and students to interact on assignments and tests. We shall discuss Web 2.0 collaborative learning and assessment strategies that significantly increase students’ group interactions, stimulate students’ interest in learning and lead students to achieve their goals in educational and corporate training applications. For example, teachers and corporate trainers can provide students with opportunities to actively participate in the collaborative learning processes by setting up hypotheses for inquiries, conducting their own research, and collecting and organizing digital artifacts to explain phenomena. Instructors can then collaboratively evaluate the work with students. Attendees will see how Web 2.0 collaboration is creating the future of e-learning and will take away ideas for implementing Web 2.0-based learning systems and methodologies at their organizations.

In this session, two members of the social bookmarking site will provide an overview and give step-by-step instructions on how to set up an account, save your favorite sites, create networks for sharing, and discover other interesting sites. Effective uses in the classroom will also be discussed, and we will leave time for open Q&A.
