Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v13 n4 p88-94 Oct 2014
Web 2.0 tools are expected to assist students to acquire knowledge effectively in their university environment. However, the lack of effort from lecturers in planning the learning process can make it difficult for the students to optimize their learning experiences. The aim of this paper is to integrate Web 2.0 tools with learning strategy in order to enhance the motivation of the students to use the Web 2.0 tools. The integration of the tools in learning a programming course is based on PQR strategy, which includes three components: Preview, Questions and Reflect. The study sample consisted of 39 undergraduate students for identifying their preference towards the use of Web 2.0 tools which include Blog, YouTube, Google Form and Padlet. The results show that the perception of students towards the use web 2.0 tools was positive. Hence, it was possible to integrate a learning strategy with specific Web 2.0 tools, and, thus, facilitate blended learning.
