A Study of the Acceptability of a Web 2.0 Application by Higher-education Students undertaking Collaborative Laboratory Activities

This paper presents the findings of a study on the acceptability in higher education of a Web 2.0 collaborative application, namely eLogbook. The latter offers several features for sustaining collaboration and supporting personal and group learning. It was introduced to students taking a laboratory course that spans over one semester and mainly consists of in-class group experiments. In this paper, we present eLogbook. We then describe our hypotheses as well as the qualitative and quantitative methods used to evaluate the usefulness and usability of eLogbook in a formal learning context. Finally, we discuss our findings and its implications.
