Social media and student outcomes: teacher, student and employer views

This report investigates how social media, such as Facebook and YouTube, is being used in vocational education and training (VET) courses. Interviews with teachers, students and employers across three registered training organisations found that social media can help to improve student engagement and lead to more course completions. While the use of social media was favoured, there were some concerns around the double-handling of information by teachers for audit purposes and students' understanding of privacy settings.
