Web 2.0

Web 2.0 is generally used to refer to second-generation web tools in which everybody creates content for the web. If Web 1.0 was a person writing a web page and posting it, Web 2.0 is millions of people sharing information or thoughts via blogs, or wikis, or shared bookmarks, rather than having to learn HTML code. Increasingly, web pages are becoming "dashboards" that aggregate all kinds of stuff from disparate sources out there on the web. (Combining data - such as Google Earth imagery with census data in order to see population distribution on current maps - is a very Web 2.0 thing to do.)

So anything that's web 2.0-ish is easy to use, omnipresent on the web, and allows a lot of sharing.

Blogs

Using blogs in your class can be an excellent way to promote student interaction with the material you provide them with. A public blog can be shared with the world, while Blackboard offers blog capability for courses that you teach.
