Abstract

This study aimed to identify the current status of using Web 2.0 tools in university teaching by the faculty members of the College of Education at Sudan University of Science and Technology. The study used a descriptive analytical method based on the use of questionnaires and interviews. The questionnaire was administered to a sample of 40 members selected randomly from the study population. The results showed that the level of using Web 2.0 tools in university teaching by faculty was medium, and the highest level of usage was represented in the field of scientific research. The results also showed that there are no statistically significant differences on the use of Web 2.0 tools in university teaching due to the degree level, whereas the findings showed statistically significant differences on the use of Web 2.0 tools due to departmental specialisation. The results also showed that using Web 2.0 in teaching caused by some difficulties. In light of these results, a set of recommendations and further research are provided.
