Ham, Jeremy J. and Aurel Schnabel, Marc 2010, Web 2.0 VDS : social networking as a facilitator of design education, in ANZAScA 2010 : On the border : architectural science in theory & practice : Proceedings of the 44th Annual Conference of the Architectural Science Association, ANZAScA, Auckland, New Zealand, pp. 1-8.
In 2009, Deakin University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong trailed the use of Web 2.0 technologies to enhance learning outcomes in a third year architectural design studio that was modelled on the Virtual Design Studios (VDS) of past decades. The studio developed the VDS further by integrating a social learning environment into the blended learning experience. The Web 2.0 VDS utilised the social networking sites Ning.com, YouTube and Skype; various 3D modelling and video- and/or image-processing software; plus chat-software. These were used in combination to deliver lectures, communicate learning goals, disseminate learning resources, submit work, and provide feedback and comments on various design works in assessing students’ outcomes. This paper centres on issues of learning and teaching associated with the development of a Social Network VDS (SNVDS).
