Abstract

The development of Web 2. 0 technologies creates new methods in the learning
process. The adaptation of Web 2.0 as a learning tool is due to the familiarity
of the use of Web 2. 0 technologies by students. This study attempts to observe
the usage of Web 2. 0 for knowledge construction in the learning process. The
objectives of the study are to identify the use of Web 2. 0 tools which contribute
to the construction of knowledge, and to identify which categories of Web 2.0
tools are mostly used by the students. This research used the questionnaire
survey method. A total of 397 questionnaires were distributed among the
students ofprivate higher education institutions. Based on the findings, the use
of Web 2.0 tools contributed to the knowledge in terms of facilitating
communication and collaboration from different teams, accessing knowledge
such as online subject communities, experts and other educators, using lesson
videos and online clips and lastly students used Web 2. 0 tools toshare similar
interests and create communities around a centre of interest. Thus, the use of
Web 2.0 tools is a trend among students whereby they can communicate
