Abstract

This paper provides an overview on the `state of art' of Web 2.0 use in Higher Education exploring reasons why and how Web 2.0 tools, namely, wikis, blogs and online forums are being used in educational settings. This paper acknowledges that there is an apparent lack of evidence in the Web 2.0 literature regarding the steps taken by educators to introduce Web 2.0 in the classroom. A Web 2.0 implementation framework is presented which provides educators with a set of practical steps to follow when adopting the use of Web 2.0 for the first time. This framework can be tested and developed in educational settings based on the experience of other educators.
