Social Media Classroom: a New Web 2.0 Education Platform

SMC Logo

Last week ReadWriteWeb highlighted Social Media Classroom (SMC) a new web 2.0 platform for education.  SMC is a free open-source Drupal-based web service for teachers and learners.  SMC is an web classroom format that integrates social media tools such as :

  • blogs
  • wiki
  • chat
  • social bookmarking

The Classroom also includes curricular material: syllabi, lesson plans, resource repositories, screencasts and videos.  The Collaboratory (or Colab), is what we call just the web service part of it.  Educators are encouraged to use the Colab and SMB materials freely, and we host your Colab communities if you don’t want to install your own. 

This website is an invitation to grow a public resource of knowledge
and relationships among all who are interested in the use of social media
in learning, and therefore, it is made public with the intention of
growing a community of participants who will take over its
provisioning, governance and future evolution.
