Running head: INTEGRATING WEB 2.0

Integrating Web 2.0 in the UMUC MDE Program

Allison L. Kipta

University of Maryland University College


As more government, business, non-profit and academic institutions adopt Enterprise 2.0, it is critical for future distance education leaders, teachers, and trainers to learn how to best employ Web 2.0 applications in online distance learning situations. The literature supports using blogs and wikis for distance learning, but not in all situations. While Web 2.0 may support collaboration and sharing far better than the traditional learning management system (LMS), the LMS has metrics collection, evaluation, and archiving benefits that are unmatched. From a learner’s perspective, programs that teach and train new students of distance education should integrate Web 2.0 tools into learning activities to better prepare their graduates.

Wikis, blogs, RSS, social bookmarking, folksonomies, AJAX, and ‘The Long Tail’ are all buzzwords commonly associated with Web 2.0. This project endeavors to de-mystify and examine possibilities for extending the learning management system with Web 2.0 tools to bolster the knowledge and skills of future distance education managers, teachers, and trainers. The University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Master of Distance Education (MDE) program, offered in partnership with the Carl Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany, is used as an example. The current state of the UMUC MDE system from the perspective of learner is examined, and through a brief review of the literature, pro and con aspects of teaching and learning with Web 2.0 are presented with some legal, privacy, security, and economic considerations. There are skeptics. There are those with an interest, but a fear of technology. There are proponents and advocates of new technology who need a better understanding of what Web 2.0 is. This project endeavors to be considerate of all these audiences.
