Abstract—Web 2.0 provides a number of technologies that democratise the development and use of computer applications. Many of the new applications are social. Prominent examples include Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter and YouTube. In education we might draw upon the popularity of these new technologies amongst our learners to enhance their learning experience. In the Faculty of Engineering and Computing at Coventry University we are investigating an approach which we have termed Activity Led Learning (ALL) to promote better engagement and an enhanced experience amongst our learners. Group work is an important part of ALL where the focus is on students learning through self-directed investigation, discovery and doing, rather than through the traditional approach of listening to lectures followed by associated supported tutorials or laboratories. Web 2.0 technology provides important support mechanisms for our new approach as well as constituting and important skill development area for our Computing students. The Web 2.0 technologies that we have utilised so far include discussion forums, wikis, twitter and mash-ups.

Index Terms—activity-led learning, problem-based learning, VLE, web 2.0, wiki, discussion forum, mash-up
