Abstract

We present the work-in-progress achievements and early findings from a research project investigating the university students’ use of Web 2.0 tools and digital technologies for informal use and formal learning and prevailing web literacy skills. Our aim of the research is to propose recommendations for addressing skill gaps in web literacy and offer support to students to further develop their competencies with on-line information. the project is funded by the University of Leicester’s College of Social Sciences.
