The term "Web 2.0" is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with each other as contributors to the website's content, in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them. Examples of Web 2.0 include web-based communities, hosted services, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups, and folksonomies.
Based on the original Tim Oâ€™Reilly discussions of Web 2.0 and the seven principles that he describes as
The Web as platform
Harnessing collective intelligence
Data is the next 'Intel inside'
End of the software release cycle
Lightweight programming models
Software above the level of single device
And Rich user experiences
An application or service must at least fulfill some of the criteria before it should be labeled as a Web 2.0. In short, these concepts are about building something more than a global information space, something with much more of a social angle to it. Collaboration, contribution and community reconstructs the road which maybe creating the sense that we are migrating into a new milestone.
In recent times, however, there has been a spate of new ideas, interesting applications that we thought they might be ridiculous initially and unique start-up companies working on ways to extend existing services. Some of them might be more useful or important than others, and some are certainly be more relevant to education than others.
