Abstract

Curt Bonk has observed that "most course management systems fail to provide creative sparks to learning because they only track or map it after it occurs" (2009, pp. 135-136). This presentation will be anchored by a description of how and why the faculty members in an online Instructional Technology MEd program are using Web 2.0 tools outside a standard LMS to support teaching and learning. Specific examples of instructor and student use of the tools will be described and discussed.
