Keywords: e-learning, Web 2.0, social networking, course design, cluster analysis, teaching

Abstract:
Even though Internet and Web have always supported some form of social interaction, Web 2.0 shifts this paradigm to a new level. As social networking that rises from Web 2.0 applications, gains acceptance within the Internet community and the general public, a concept of enabling e-learning using Web 2.0 tools and services becomes more and more recognized. Goal of this paper is to evaluate empirically some of the constraints that are crucial for course design using social networking tools. A survey was carried out among current students at the Faculty of Economics and Business in Zagreb in order to evaluate issues connected with student constraints on course design. A cluster analysis was used in order to identify different student groups and their expectations from Web 2.0 tools that would be used to support e-learning. The results show that there are four typical groups of student attitudes towards implementation of Web 2.0 in e-learning. A successful course design should take into account expectations and demands for each of these groups. According to these results comparison of identified needs and currently available practices was conducted showing the advantages Web 2.0 contributes to e-learning while also uncovering weak points that can be further improved.
