Social networking sites: Transparency in online Education – Christian Dalsgaard, Institute of Information and Media Studies, University of Aarhus, Denmark.

Article Social networking sites: Transparency in Online Education by Christian Dalsgaard, discusses the question: What are the educational potential of social networking sites?

One of the characteristics of social networks is the combination of personalization and socialization, which can facilitate transparency between the students.

The article will discuss how social networking can be used to educate college students share information and resources that are originally developed for himself, but made available to others – for example markers, references, links and notes.

 Transparency encourages students to work cooperatively distance because it allows everyone to view the work, progress and difficulties of each other as partners.

Student work can be individually and in these cases may not be aware of the activity of other students, these products are relevant to the other students.

The potential of social networking is transparency and ability to create awareness among students – possibly through institutions and nations.

The article discusses the means by which social networking and transparency can be used in online education. In conclusion, the article argues that the educational potential of social networking is in transparency and the ability to sensitize and motivate students.  The authors conclude that social networking sites are not new learning management systems. From the perspective of the Theory of Freedom Coopertativa, highlight the advantages of communication and interaction as a pedagogical capability provided by the use of social networks.
