Abstract

Abstract: Online learning is growing almost exponentially, both in higher education and in the K-12 environment. Most online courses are hosted with the use of a course management system, which most commonly utilizes threaded discussion to provide communication with and between students. More recently Web 2.0 tools are also being used to support project based learning in the online environment. This research examined the use of VoiceThread, EduGlogster, and Wall Wisher, Web 2.0 tools which provide enhanced tools for creative expression as well as social networking options. Use of these tools enhanced graduate students' satisfaction with the online course and supported achievement of course goals.
