Abstract:

Social Computing has evolved with the purpose of triggering the collective consciousness of human beings thereby leading them to common goals. This bringing together of people has opened up a cornucopia of possibilities in education. However the large scale implementation of social computing in a university setting is still not widespread as one would expect. This paper tries to understand the reasons for this lack of widespread use by getting actual user perspectives in an Indian university. An initial recommendation for practical implementation has also been discussed. © 2010 ACM.
