These tools can expand discussion beyond the classroom and provide new ways for students to collaborate and communicate within their class or around the world. Dickinson College has implemented two of the best-known tools, the wiki and the blog, in conjunction with voiceover IP (VoIP) communication and social networking tools. This article describes several social software tools that can support students and staff beyond the classroom. (Contains 37 online resources and 1 endnote.)
