Work In progress: use of social software for final year project supervision at a campus based university

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Different students approach tasks in a project differently. Supervisors need to devise ways of accommodating these differences, albeit the difficulties in identifying them. At the start of a project, a student may be a) Independent and need very little supervision, b) Collaborator and seek supervision as required, c) Poser who poses to be independent and may seek help later or the supervisor may need to identify and provide help, d) Dependent on the supervisor They do not however stay in these categories throughout the project. The supervisor must identify and help those students in categories other than (a). We present a novel mix of social software namely: Twitter and Wiki. The aim is to help supervisors in identifying their student’s needs thereby making them more flexible in dealing with different students. Students themselves get greater sense of ownership and community support from fellow students doing a project.
