With the emergence of Web 2.0 applications, content creation, publishing, dissemination and communication structures among individuals, groups, and communities have significantly changed. The challenge for educators is tapping into the tools and incorporating it in a meaningful way to help the students become empowered and to take ownership of their own learning. Consequently, the role of Web 2.0 technologies is explored in supporting learning development. A discussion on the usage trends of Web 2.0 tools in an academic setting is presented and a case study of Facebook being used and utilized in a Multimedia Systems course is described. Future study is to look at the Web 2.0 features available in the Learning Management System (LMS) that not been fully utilized by either the students or the lecturers.
