Abstract

Social media and web 2.0 applications are ubiquitous within the online environment that most students visit regularly. Here we present examples of how these tools offer the potential to carry out asynchronous learning regardless of their limitations. Specifically, we explore the use of Delicious, YouTube channels and other video applications, and embedding a Facebook discussion board with a class. Currently, we are collecting data for their assessment. Nonetheless, our first pilot has revealed surprising successes and hints to how easily a mobile element can be added to courses.
