Group work getting you down? Dweeber could be your answer!

Do you have group work built into your online course?  Are you trying to find ways to help your students connect with one another more and maybe even work together in study groups?  Do your students engage in social networking (most likely a definite yes to this last question)?  If you answered yes to any of these, I encourage you to check out Dweeber!

Dweeber is a social networking site created and designed specifically to help students learn and connect to their education on another level.  While it was initially designed for youth, I can see it having many benefits for our students - both traditional college-aged and non-traditional college-aged.  Check out what Dweeber is about; check out the FAQs about Dweeber; and check out what you can do on Dweeber.  It may be a site to share with your students!
