The major adoption of educational technology by higher education coincided and responded with the introduction of the web. With the ease of a single login, eLearning services (like courseware downloads, online forums, eAssessment, etc) became accessible and useful to the majority of the campus community. The recent interest in the introduction of Web 2.0 promises to bring the learning experience to a new and higher level. It makes the educational experience more real world like, while simultaneously opening new learning and reflective opportunities to facilitate and to some extent, ensure learning. The presentation will share the University 2.0 initiative at the Nanyang Technological University in which learning has become more participative, professors teach less with students learning more, research activities by students are better managed to facilitate more effective mentorship and enable some meaningful knowledge management capability for the professor and the institution.
