Abstract

This paper describes an instructional design model, the Networked Learning Framework (NLF), which combines the use of social media tools found in social networking sites with guided online activities to deliver engaging learning opportunities. Key for the Networked Learning Framework is that this model utilizes social networking site groups as a virtual learning space. Some of the unique characteristics of this model include the persistance of the course space over time, a focus on artifact creation as a learning outcome, and the ability of the learning space to be used for continuous intake enrolments. Participants of NLF implementations report that the sharing of resources, reflective blogs, and collegial discussions are some of the valuable outcomes. Using a design-based research methodology, this research has resulted in design principals and factors for designers. Further research to identify effective supports for social networking novices and ways to build online facilitator capacity is needed.
