This paper looks at the implications of Web 2.0 technologies for university teaching and learning. The latest generation of undergraduates already live in a Web 2.0 world. They have new service expectations and are increasingly dissatisfied with teacher‐centred pedagogies. To attract and retain these students, universities will need to rethink their operations.
