In this session the presenters shared best practices in using social media by presenting data derived from multiple case studies at a large university in the western United States. The researchers will discuss the effects of these technologies on students’ learning experiences, general principles for successful use of social media, challenges encountered by their use, and ideas for improving the use of social media in higher education courses from both the instructor and student perspectives.
