Student retention? It's the Facebook, stupid
The intellectual inheritor of the Facebook work performed at the University of Leicester several years ago by Madge et al (
Facebook, social integration and informal learning at university: It is more for socialising and talking to friends about work than for actually doing work. 2009 Learning, Media and Technology, 34 (2): 141-15
) is the new work coming out of the
Student Retention Project
headed by the Student Support and Development Service on
The Effect of Online Social Networking on Facilitating Sense of Belonging among University Students Living Off Campus
As Neil Selwyn so eloquently said,
Screw Blackboard... do it on Facebook!
Sold my soul to Facebook
Facebook is my VLE?
