Abstract

The software engineering educational system influences, and is influenced by, a number of social and technical factors of the ecosystem in which it resides. The Social Web environment includes a number of technologies and applications based on those technologies. The aim of this chapter is to examine a technological revitalization of software engineering education (SEE) from the perspective of the Social Web. In doing so, a systematic approach towards integrating the Social Web environment in SEE is explored. The potential prospects and associated concerns of such integration, both inside and outside the classroom, are illustrated by a number of practical examples.
