Flickr: The Promise of Social Networks

The Promise of Social Networks

By Derek E Baird

[Flickr and e-learning applications]


"... While not originally developed as an education tool,
Flickr, and other social networking technologies have
the ability to play an important part in student motivation,
retention and learning—especially in distributed learning
environments. Social networking technologies and media
are important tools because of their ability to foster
interaction and communication between students.
This is especially important in online learning communities,
where students may have limited face-to-face time to build
a support network with their peers."

Note: Useful article with examples of the use of Flickr in online
