Web 2.0 is the term to describe the second generation of applications that facilitate the communication, socialization, and collaboration through the World Wide Web. Web applications that include social networking, video-sharing, wikis, and blogs are being used more and more to deliver instruction in formal environments. Despite the good intentions of faculty members to include Web 2.0 capabilities in their courses, the reality is that often courses are not designed with usability in mind. This session will present a framework to design online courses that integrate Web 2.0 applications using a task oriented methodology. This methodology facilitates the interaction of the learner so that the learner can concentrate on completing learning tasks.
