The aim of the present study was to empower mobile assisted social e-learning (eMASE) module that was designed based on social constructivism theory in higher education settings. This study reports findings from a group of undergraduates' expectations and perceptions of e-cooperative learning using mobile social networking apps. The eMASE module of the course was carefully designed by organizing various group activities which were emphasized to encourage social interaction and promote collaborative learning among students. The data come from two sets of questionnaires administered at the start and end of the course. The results indicated that using Web 3.0 technologies in a learning environment was effective in enhancing collaboration and promote students' learning motivation and confidence.
