Abstract

Web 2.0 technologies are increasingly being incorporated into facets of everyday life, the workplace, and academic settings. Educators are exploring the possibilities and opportunities that these technologies can offer. While there is much excitement about the pedagogical potential Web 2.0 holds, little is understood about how these tools are being used by faculty in higher education. The purpose of this exploratory study is to examine levels of awareness and use of Web 2.0 applications by faculty in higher education in their teaching. The findings indicated that while faculty exhibited varied levels of awareness of Web 2.0 tools, their instructional integration is quite limited, particularly so in terms of embedded Web 2.0 tools in LMS systems. Email and discussion forum still comprised of the highest percentage of tool use.
