Reviewing the Performance and Impact of Social Media Tools in Higher Education
The adoption of social media tools within higher education has become steadily prevalent being applied towards the delivery of a variety of academic disciplines (Wang and Meiselwitz, 2015). Prior research has also indicated that social media use, dependent on its implementation, can support and facilitate various pedagogical approaches towards course provision (Cooke, 2015). Learning in higher education has become ubiquitous with cell phones, PDAs (Personal Data Assistant) and smart phones used to deliver educational content (Pimmer, Mateescu and Grohbiel, 2016).
