Social media for education

Prototype presentation and testing

In an ongoing research project (Social Media as a Catalyser for Cross National Learning SoMeCat), utilising a mixed methods approach, we analysed how students/instructors use social media for teaching, learning, research. Furthermore, we analyzed existing social media strategies of universities.

In the ongoing work package an online social media toolkit targeting instructors in higher education is designed, programmed. The toolkit will assess the instructors teaching situation (by asking questions regarding goals, content, instructional methods and assessment types) and suggest the best fitting social media class by using an algorithm rooted in various instructional theories. Guidelines how to use the suggested social media class will be provided for the instructors.
