Abstract

A collaborative approach is now rapidly expanding into higher education. Social software tools are receiving great attention among educators. There is minimal research on the adoption of social software tools and instructors’ attitude toward the use of these tools. The purpose of this study is to explore language instructors’ attitudes and intentions to use social networking sites as teaching tools in ESL class. Personal attitudes are a major factor that affects the adoption of information technology. Understanding instructors’ attitudes helps in developing a better learning environment for both instructors and learners.
