Abstract

The use of social media applications such as Twitter and Facebook allow students to receive immediate alerts of posts where they can respond immediately without having to access an LMS system to read through forum posts. Social media can also foster better communication and relationships among students that would naturally occur in a face- to- face classroom environment. Others, however, feel that the use of social media create barriers and disruptions to learning. This paper discusses some of the more common arguments both for and against the use of social media in higher education programs and provides suggestions for the effective use of social media applications in the learning environment.
