Abstract

This research shows that when faculty in higher education engage their students by using a social media platform that is specially designed for higher education to bring their courses up to date with current information and combine knowledge management with social media the students experience enhanced critical thinking, written communication, and learning by collaborating with classmates. The social platform used for this research is ValuePulse.
