By integrating Web 2.0 applications into
standard curricula, colleges and universities can harness and capitalize off
the power of today’s technologies. Several have already tapped into the early
incarnation of these trends, including distance-based learning and Web-based
classroom instruction, and still others are implementing social networking,
wikis, and blogs into a variety of learning experiences—with advantageous
Blogs provide a unique space where a learner gets the benefit of both individual and collaborative learning.
A podcast is a multimedia file (an audio or video file) that can be easily distributed over the Web and played on a computer or a portable digital audio device.Learners can subscribe to a podcast that gets downloaded to their devices and listen to them when it’s convenient for them.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for publishing frequently updated webbased content. It works by bringing together information from multiple Web sites on to a single page via an application called feed collector.
Widgets are self-contained applications used for displaying and updating remote data, which can be seamlessly integrated with and run on your Web page or desktop computer. Several Websites such as Britannica and Widgipedia provide a range of widgets that you can choose from to include on your page and the TeacherVisionR Web widgets feature different content each day. Faculty can determine which widgets best suit the grade level and course needs for maximum effect.
A wiki is an open-access Web site that allows multiple users to create, edit, and organize content collaboratively. Unlike blogs, Wikis enable you to edit information shared by other participants. Because of the voluntary participation in these open environments, these applications should be monitored by faculty to ensure quality and integrity of the content
Web 2.0 is witnessing an unprecedented surge in video creation, sharing and virtual campus integration. Video sharing sites, such YouTube and Microsoft’s Soapbox, have opened new avenues for users to impart visual stories rather than textual ones.
Web 2.0 brings a whole new dimension to the old adage "show, don't tell"—and lets you share your presentations anytime, anywhere, with anyone you like.
With Web 2.0 you can push the boundaries of traditional presentations, mix things up, and make learning more engaging than ever before.
Try these free video integration tools in your classroom for projects, presentations, parent meetings and more.
Making a call is low on the list of features of cell phones these days. Check out new ways to go mobile, beyond texting and sharing images.
Community-building and collaboration are two defining aspects of Web 2.0. A range of tools enable teachers and students to communicate, collaborate and share work.
