Leitch, Shona and Warren, Matthew J. 2011, Social networking and teaching : an Australian case study, in InSITE 2011 : Proceedings of Informing Science & IT Education Conference, Informing Science Institute, [Novi Sad, Serbia], pp. 315-326.
In recent years, the Internet has impacted all aspects of modern society. We have now seen the phenomenon of social networking and the impact that this had upon all aspects of modern society including higher education. An issue is how can these social networking technologies relate to tertiary education and how can they be used in this educational context. This paper is based on two case studies which were conducted at an Australian University into the usage of two social networking systems in a teaching environment. The results of these case studies were assessed using a socio-technical framework.
