FaceBook as an E-learning tool: How to support classroom teaching with FaceBook? 96c1028 黃婷鈺
By Simon Yencken
English Teaching Forum
TEFL(Original Teaching English as a Foreign Language Group)
This group was created
on October 23, 2006. Its great people
you can trust people here,
make sure they are verified,
and their courses vouched for. Otherwise... It is reported that other "omnipresent"
trans-national corporations & pure-for-profit
companies have also jumped on the Facebook
bandwagon. Our soul is our group.
Not the pound, not the dollar,
just teachers and no fancy logos.
Notes (a FaceBook app)
Description: This is an obvious app because it is a Facebook app. You can post and tag notes , you can import RSS feeds (but it is not meant as an aggregator) and you can share your notes with friends . You cannot attach other documents than photos, but today with online office apps this may not a big problem. The Good: Tightly integrated into Facebook, fast, easy. The Bad: No support for teaching, groupwork or course structure. No support to structure lots of notes besides tags. Users have to micromanage tool if they want to subscribe to the other users tools (only friends). Very basic tool. Bottom line: This tools is usable for sharing some notes between friends.
Description: A Wiki inside your FaceBook account. Create private, shared (to friends) and public wikis. The Good: It’s a Wiki. You can create pages by will, the access rights can be switched on and off by Facebook user groups (friends and networks). The Bad: It’s a Wiki. Can be technically daunting to “normal” users. No upload of documents, only links. Bottom line: That’s a very nice integration of the Wiki technology into FaceBook . If you are looking for a Wiki within FaceBook, don’t look further.
Description: a complete mini groupware app : share Files, have Discussions, online scheduler, define tasks, and create and admin study groups. The Good: This is basically what all bread and butter Learning Content Management environments have provided from the start: asynchronous groupware. Fairly complete for organizing a study group. The Bad: some group shoutbox is missing, but you can always use skype for that. No support for peer assessments or E-Portfolios , though. No workflows. No course authoring for students or teachers (but you could use WikiMono for that). Bottom line: As you can see, to find bad I really needed to expect a full blown Learning Content Management System. Together with FaceBook this app can do what yesteryears Blackboard could do from a student perspective.
Zoho Online Office
Description: Zoho is one of the better online office webapps with a full array of tools (basically, they have anything you could think of plus one). In their facebook app, they give you only access to text documents, presentations, spreadsheets and database apps. The Good: Very feature rich set of four web apps . The Bad: You can only share with friends, no networks or groups. No integration of the editor into FaceBook, editing opens up a new tab with the Zoho app. Bottom line: Zoho has the potential to become a very important contender for , because they have this unbelievable swiss army knife collection of tools. Right now the integration is not tight enough. Nevertheless, You can just use Zoho as your Web Office Suite and then use some other FaceBook apps to share their links.
Notecentric Courses and Notes
Description: A Notes application built around courses, notes, rosters and discussions . The Good: Flexible setup of courses for note taking. Easy to use, discussions thrown in . The Bad: No attachments , rosters are tedious to build up because no tight integration into FaceBook. Just Notes and Discussions. Bottom line: Study Groups (see above) seems more complete.
escription: Uh, another app with the same name? Nope, it is another one, and it slightly different. So this is another app to create a timetable and a workplace for your courses . The Good: Has Discussion view for all courses you are enrolled in (no need to switch back and forth). Upload of files, too. The Bad: No graphical timetable. No wiki. No notes. Bottom line: Tough decision which to take (MyCourseList vs. CourseList)
Courses (facebook app)
Description: Maybe the decision is not so tough. Just use this one This is the real deal from FaceBook themselves (makes you wonder as an application developer if it is wise to compete in the core centre of FaceBook usage with FaceBook itself). This app has all of the above, much slicker experience and support for the instructor role! The Good: This app has everything as the two other Courses app (see above) + Videochat and support for instructor (announcements, instructor files). The Bad: Still no Wiki or other editor for course materials. No way to integrate outside material by RSS feeds. No student portfolios and no self- or peer-assessments. No way to do evaluations or tests. Bottom line: As you can see, this app is very good for supporting document-centric courses. Start with this app if you are new to teaching with FaceBook.
