What Is E-learning 2.0?

Web 2.0 has become a popular buzz word and of course you can’t have Web 2.0 with ordinary e-learning - so now it’s time for E-learning 2.0! Confused? Yeah, I know how you feel. But I think that reading this article about E-learning 2.0 by Stephen Downes can help you to understand the meaning and practical application of these buzz words.

For me E-learning 2.0 represents a real opportunity to finally shift the focus from the technology to the users and to make e-learning really a learning experience and not just a different form of study material delivery. Education does in my opinion need to move with the technology developments. Not only because we need to develop appropriate 21st century skills to keep with up new technologies, but also because we need to learn how to involve digital native generations in learning.
