Exploring the Potential Perceptions of Social Networking Systems in University Courses

This project sought to determine the feasibility of using a social networking site, specifically Facebook®, as a study aide for a biology content course for elementary education majors at a comprehensive Midwestern university. One hundred and ten students were surveyed as to their current social network usage and their possible use of such sites in an educational setting. While initial survey results proved favorable, there were considerable comments regarding aspects of privacy, and possible distractions using such social networking sites for "school work".
