Guest Editor: Dr. Wang Qiyun, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Web 2.0 is an improved form of World Wide Web. A fundamental feature of Web 2.0 is that it can deliver and allow users to control interactive applications entirely through a web-based browser.

It will provide researchers and practitioners with the most recent concepts, theories, development, practical guidelines, and concrete examples of integrating Web 2.0 tools and technologies into teaching and leaning.
