Abstract

This paper is based on a case study of practice which explores the use of social media within a blended mode of study. Specifically, it aims to consider the professional use of online social contexts to support teaching and encourage collaboration between learners. It will illustrate some factors intended to protect their digital identities, confidence and online well-being. This paper draws upon the recent report within the University of Glasgow - Analysis of digital media: supporting university-wide online learning via Moodle (Dunn et al, 2015). This case study is also based upon similar international works, for your reference, (Carpenter and Krutka, 2014: Honeycutt and Herring, 2009: Kassen-Noor, 2012: Junco et al, 2010).
