Experimenting with Web 2.0 at University of Leicester

The latest Journal of Information Literacy contains "Experimenting with Web 2.0 to cultivate information literacy within a medical ethics, law and human rights course" by Sarah Whittaker and Joanne Dunham. Interesting to read how they have tried out various Web 2.0 technologies.
"The resources developed were popular with the students and the course tutor reported an improvement in the range of their reading. However, there was no perceptible change in the way the students worked nor did they use the Web 2.0 communication tools provided to enhance their learning. For the Library’s information skills training to be effective and to go beyond just providing search tools, information literacy and the Web 2.0 technologies need to be written into the course itself rather than as an adjunct.
