Alqahtani, Fayez Hussain, Zakaria, Mohd Hafiz , & Watson , Jason (2010) Web 2.0 applications in enterprises and education. In 2010 Proceedings of the International Conference on e-Commerce, e-Administration, e-Society, e-Education, and e-Technology, The Grand Lisboa, Macau, China.
Web 2.0 technology and concepts are being used increasingly by organisations to enhance knowledge, efficiency, engagement and reputation. Understanding the concepts of Web 2.0, its characteristics, and how the technology and concepts can be adopted, is essential to successfully reap the potential benefits. In fact, there is a debate about using the Web 2.0 idiom to refer to the concept behind it; however, this term is widely used in literature as well as in industry. In this paper, the definition of Web 2.0 technology, its characteristics and the attributes, will be presented. In addition, the adoption of such technology is further explored through the presentation of two separate case examples of Web 2.0 being used: to enhance an enterprise; and to enhance university teaching. The similarities between these implementations are identified and discussed, including how the findings point to generic principles of adoption.
