Introduction, Web 2.0

Some definitions…

Web 2.0: the “participatory” Web

second generation of web-based communities and hosted services which aim to facilitate creativity, collaboration, and sharing between users. The term gained currency following the first O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004 Wikipedia

at technical level: associated to Ajax Language, that integrates Java and HTML for a rapid and media-rich interaction with the Web

Some Key words…

Semantic Web

The meaning of web contents is created most of all by users

Social media

online tools and platforms that people use to share opinions, insights, experiences, and perspectives with each other. Social media can take many different forms, including text, images, audio, and video

Social software

software programs that allow users to interact and share data with other users

Centro METID


Web 2.0: a little history

After 2000 dot com crash, during the following 3 or 4 years for business Internet seemed to be an empty promise…but later on…

open source standards: adoption of OS standards supported by critical mass of people

interaction: growth of online forums, based on common interest

web applications: Amazon, eBay, Google evolve successfully



Web 2.0

increasing interest in informal and non-formal learning

diffusion of


Centro METID


Some definitions…

Formal learning takes place in education and training institutions, leading to recognised diplomas and qualifications

Non-formal learning takes place alongside the mainstream systems of education and training and does not typically lead to formalised certificates. lt can also be provided through organisations or services that have been set up to complement formal systems (such as arts, music and sports classes or private tutoring to prepare for examinations)

Informal learning is a natural accompaniment to everyday life. Informal learning is not necessarily intentional learning, and so may well not be recognised even by individuals themselves as contributing to their knowledge and skills

Content Sharing Web 2.0 tools: WIKI

  • DefinitionWiki is a software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. Ward Cunningham, developer of the first wiki, WikiWikiWeb, originally described it as "the simplest online database that could possibly work".
  • . Main features:
    • Wiki enables documents to be written collaboratively, in a simple way, using a web browser
    • most wikis keep a record of changes made to wiki pages, therefore authors can revert to an older version of the page (versioning)

Centro METID


Comparison of wiki

Content Sharing: Wiki

Other features

  • many wikis are open to the general public without requiring them to register user accounts. Sometimes logging in for a session is recommended
  • users can create any number of index or table of contents pages, with hierarchical categorization or whatever form of organization they like. Wikis generally provide one or more ways to categorize or tag pages, to support the maintenance of such index pages.
  • to create links to pages that do not yet exist, as a way to invite others to share what they know about a new subject

Tools for collaborative creation of common bibliography: Social Bookmarking

  • Social bookmarking is a method to store, organize, search and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet by using key words (tags).
  • Primary features
    • users save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share. These bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private domains
    • informal tags to organize bookmarks
    • bookmarks can be displayed chronologically, by category or tags, or via a search engine
    • information about the number of users who bookmarked the same link
    • extra features such as ratings and comments on bookmarks, import / export bookmarks from / to browsers, emailing of bookmarks, web annotation…

Centro METID


Social bookmarking: some key words

Tags and folksonomy


keyword used to organize bookmarks

Tag clouds are frequently used to visualize the most used tags of a folksonomy

Folksonomy, social classification, social indexing

practice of collaboratively creating and managing tags to index and annotate and

categorize content. Metadata generated not only by experts, but also by creators

and consumers of the content. Folksonomy is a key concept of Web 2.0

Centro METID


Social bookmarking

  • Advantages
    • All tag-based classification of Internet resources (such as web sites) is done by human beings, who understand the content of the resource semantically classified tags, which are hard to find with contemporary search engines resources that are of more use are bookmarked by more users  a system will "rank" a resource based on its perceived utility
  • Disadvantages
    • No standard set of keywords
    • No standard for the structure of tags (e.g. singular vs. plural, capitalization, etc.)
    • Mistagging due to spelling errors, tags with more than one meaning, unclear tags…
    • No possibility to define hierarchical relationships between tags

Centro METID


Delicious - features

  • URL: Primary Features:
  • Created in 2003
  • First social bookmarking application
  • The Most used instrument
  • In 2005, bought by Yahoo! Guide for Educators
  • []
  • Other features:
  • Tags can be stored in folders Public or private bookmarks
  • it is possible to share bookmarks
  • Bundle tags: to group together several tags
  • Tag rolls: to show my own tags on my own blog/website
  • Links for you: to suggest links to other people from your network

Centro METID


Some models of useof social bookmarking for e-collaboration and learning

    • Production of expert andteacher-authored list of resources
    • Recommendation of relevant resources to specific users
    • Production of collaborative, users and student-authored list of resources
  • Value added of social bookmarking for e-collaboration and learning:
    • Social bookmarking tools allow (and encourage) shared responsibility for development of contents. Colleagues can cross institutional boundaries to collaborate on projects and research
