summary:A review of studies that have examined the integration of Web 2.0 tools into E-Learning 2.0 withinbuilt environment educational programs is undertaken. An analysis of studies undertaken reveals five corethemes can be derived: (1) students using Web 2.0 demonstrate the capability for effective learning; (2) Skillslearned via Web 2.0 can be transferred to the work and untrained tasks; (3) limited research has comparedlearning in conventional E-Learning and Web 2.0 environments; (4) E-Learning 2.0 enables social learningprocess to take place, and (5) the shift from eLearning 1.0 (Web 1.0 based) to E-Learning 2.0 (Web 2.0 based)requires not only a technological shift, but also a fundamental shift in the way knowledge is socially constructedand shared. Future issues and challenges are identified in order to ameliorate the integration of the E-Learning2.0 experience with Web 2.0 tools.
