Tagging Electronic Resources for Modules – A Case Study in Web 2.0 People and Technology
The aim of the TERM project - Tagging (extra, external) Electronic Resources for Modules - is to investigate the extent to which social bookmarking can be used to promote collaborative learning. The motivation for doing this is to enable students to get more value from the informal collections of on-line resources that they may gather to support their learning. The study has two main strands: identifying the barriers to sharing resources; and exploring potential solutions. The latter has focussed on exploiting both the social and technology opportunities provided by “Web 2.0”.
