The Higher Education Academy and JISC welcomed the publication of the HE in a Web 2.0 World report, which looks at the projected future trends in the use of technology in higher education.
Findings from the report show that students typically spend four hours a day online, a figure that looks set to rise as teenagers make increasing use of Web 2.0 technology in their daily lives. One of the challenges for the higher education sector is therefore to ensure that staff can keep pace with the advancing technology which many of their students rely on every day, using the technology to enhance the student learning experience.

If you’re already using tools like Twitter, YouTube and Google Apps, Netskills would like to hear about your experiences with them and would value any advice you have for new users.
Netskills is writing a series of JISC guides to emergent web technologies for researchers, teachers and administrators. These guides are being written for new users, perhaps considering using web 2.0 tools for the first time.
