This paper presents an integrated model to monitor and evaluate web 2.0 project-based learning through its application in a real higher education environment. Creating communities in the classroom has been the traditional method of engaging students. The web 2.0 technologies are changing the way learning communities interact. We designed a Social Computing Environment to support a community of students coming from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan involved in an International Master's Program. This study suggests that Web 2.0 tools can be integrated in a model to assess learning effectiveness in terms of Learners' Satisfaction, Knowledge Creation and Learning Performance. Preliminary results suggest that the Social Computing Environment helped students to better collaborate with peers, tutors and company's supervisors, and also provided an environment where the learning assessment phase could be much easier to perform

Abstract

This paper presents an integrated model to monitor and evaluate web 2.0 project-based learning through its application in a real higher education environment. Creating communities in the classroom has been the traditional method of engaging students. The web 2.0 technologies are changing the way learning communities interact. We designed a Social Computing Environment to support a community of students coming from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan involved in an International Master's Program. This study suggests that Web 2.0 tools can be integrated in a model to assess learning effectiveness in terms of Learners' Satisfaction, Knowledge Creation and Learning Performance. Preliminary results suggest that the Social Computing Environment helped students to better collaborate with peers, tutors and company's supervisors, and also provided an environment where the learning assessment phase could be much easier to perform
