The Analysis of Social Media Usage for Collaborative Learning

Sona MARDIKYAN [1] , Begum YILMAZ [2]


In today’s world it is obvious that social media usage is getting involved into every aspect of our lives. Naturally, even collaborative learning processes, such as team creation, communication between team members, file sharing etc., are conducted via various social media channels. It is very crucial to understand that how these two concepts interact with each other and how different parameters affect them separately and together, as taking into consideration how these concepts play a big role in our daily lives. The purpose of this study is to discover the relationship between social media and collaborative learning in a deeper manner, specifying differences among categories like several age ranges, genders, and educational levels in this relationship and with the difference of past researches, to understand better the satisfaction level of people using these two concepts together. In order to understand better the relationship between social media and collaborative learning and the satisfaction level of using both of them; interactivity with peers, interactivity with teachers, engagement, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness which affect social media usage and positive interdependence, individual accountability, active learning and group processing which affect collaborative learning are questioned in an online survey study. After examining and cleaning the collected data, most appropriate analyses are determined. Regression analysis shows that the change in the satisfaction level of the people who use social media for collaborative learning is related with perceived usefulness, individual accountability, active learning and age.
