UCL Teaching and Learning Network (TLN)

2007 - 2008 Meetings

Social Networking

FaceBook (www.facebook.com), MySpace (www.myspace.com), Bebo (www.bebo.com), LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com) are social networking sites that are becoming more and more popular in everyday life. Students are using these sites, should universities? And if so, how? We get a student view on these sites, and see how academics are using them to support their teaching. Are they useful? What are the issues?
