Australian Universities have adopted the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). In the implementation, many universities are in the process of course enhancement and paying particular attention to social technologies to enrich student-learning experiences. One Australian University in its mantra for a personal, engaging and relevant education is scaffolding staff to enhance courses and incorporate 21st century tools, including, social technologies and eportfolios within the Zone of Proximal Development (Vygotsky 1987). This paper examines how academics are scaffolding to develop learning opportunities for students and creating challenges with the fast pace technologies to connect, engage and enable interactive student learning experiences in a blended environment.
