Educational Affordances of a Facebook Group Page: A User Survey of Hong Kong Undergraduate Students

Emil Li

Both quantitative and qualitative results indicate that social networking sites such as Facebook can indeed be exploited to generate various educational affordances favorable to off-campus informal learning and course management activities in the context of higher education in Hong Kong.
