dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a short account of the educational benefits and pitfalls of using Web 2.0 technology (e.g. wikis and blogs) in teaching and learning in higher education. It draws on constructivist principles to explain and support the use of collaborative learning tools in higher education, and explores the factors necessary to create a successful e-learning environment. Support for use of such e-learning tools is placed in the context of recent shifts in pedagogical approaches to learning, the increase in demand for higher education, the widening participation agenda, and the technical revolution. It intends to convey the importance of developing collaborative learning communities within higher education, whilst keeping focus on the pedagogical, rather than technological, reasons for change.en_US
