    • Web 1.0 Defined Terry Flew defined web 1.0 in his 3rd edition of New Media as a “move from personal websites to blogs and blog site aggregation, from publishing to participation, from web content as the outcome of large up-front investment to an ongoing and interactive process, and from content management systems to links based on tagging (folksonomy)” (Web_1.0, Wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_1.0 Thursday, 4 December, 2008 2
    • Web 2.0 Defined According to Tim O’Reilly: “Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as a platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform” (O’Reilly). http://web2highered.ning.com/ video/im-oreilly-on-what-is- source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Web_2.0_Map.svg web-20 source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0 Thursday, 4 December, 2008 3

    • Web 2.0 - What’s in it for you? According to Ficek there are two main driving factors that make the use of web 2.0 tools to create PLE’s attractive for both students & faculty: Forcing educators to alter their attitude towards the technology in relation to the development, delivery, relevance, and retention of content. Empowering learning in ways that had not previously been possible. source: http://tinyurl.com/5acq9p Thursday, 4 December, 2008 10
