Samardzija, Ana Coric; Bubas, Goran
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference e-Learning 2014. Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (Lisbon, Portugal, Jul 15-19, 2014)
Numerous e-learning 2.0 studies have advocated the use of social networking sites for educational purposes, but only a few of them have observed social networking sites as an instrument for specific learner skill development. This paper discusses a study which addresses the motivation and challenges associated with the introduction of the social networking tool Elgg for the peer-review activity related to students' projects evaluation. In our study, Elgg was utilized to support the development of skills related to (a) peer-reviewing, (b) collaborative work on research projects and their online presentation, and (c) critical analysis of research proposals and reports. This report therefore aims to contribute to those areas of learner skills' development as well as to the evaluation of Elgg as an e-learning 2.0 tool. [For full proceedings, see ED557189.]
