Schoper, Sarah E.; Hill, Aaron R.
Journal of Learning Spaces, v6 n1 p34-39 2017
A growing body of research is examining the use of social media on college campuses. This study explores the use of one social media outlet, specifically Facebook's closed group feature, in two graduate courses. Findings show that using Facebook can promote student learning. Students used the groups for sharing ideas and support, asking questions, and participating in discussions. This article provides a framework for using Facebook closed groups to advance student learning.
