Human beings are social by nature. And why shouldn’t the software that people use at work support that inherent social inclination?

Self-paced Learners Meet Social Software: An Exploration of Learners’ Attitudes, Expectations and Experience

George Siemens

Several years ago, I read a post on Terry Anderson’s blog about social media as a killer app for distance learning (I can find his paper online, but not the original blog post). The concept is important: many learners are involved in self-paced distance education and social media can help improve learner success by improving learner’s connectedness to each other. The paper details how distance learning students rank traditional information provision tools (video lectures, podcasts) higher than networked learning tools like blogs, Twitter, etc.

Ridiculous research findings on informal learning

Jay Cross

Informal learning is mushrooming as organizations implement social software. An analyst reports that her company’s research finds that only 30% of U.S. companies spent money on informal learning tools or services last year. Of those, big companies spent $16,000 on average; little ones spent $5600. What an astounding finding! Just Jay

Social media - often referred to as Web 2.0 , or the participatory Web - is shaping up to be one of the most important tool sets available to support the promotion of change in education. Almost everyone, it seems, is using some element of social media in the planning, development, delivery, management or evaluation of teaching and learning.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

At this point, I also "serendipitous-ly" stumbled upon a couple of conversations recently that touched upon lurking (this is why I love social media). Lurking and its role in communities has been on the forefront of my mind for the past few days. This is also proved by the fact that many of the groups on this platform have membership of ~300 but obviously not everyone is a Contributing User.

Is Second Life 100% experimental?

eLearning Acupuncture

SL is very heavy on the ‘social scene.’ It appears that a great many people in SL are here to meet other people with intentions or striking up more than just a casual friendship. However, what distance course can afford to have 20 hours allocated to it on the front end for students to learn a software tool? Not to mention the fact that the potentially distracting 'social scene' is avoided.) For now, I view it as 100% experimental - it is simply an intriguing social simulation environment. That’s what has occurred on Second Life (SL) in the 2007 calendar year.

Students are also voting with their feet, with many preferring to use social networking tools such as Facebook to communicate in place of the institutional e-mail system. The adoption of free social software tools has raised questions over corporate branding, security and privacy issues, and legal requirements. Where will it all end?
