Continuous learning and knowledge updating are becoming an inseparable part of every society member‘s life, and a fast development of web 2.0 tools, suggests new teaching and learning possibilities. Web 2.0 tools can enhance student learning, enabling him/her to take a more active role. However, sometimes the possibilities, introduced by web 2.0, are not fully utilized. Research has shown that more often, students still use more traditional internet tools, such as email for communication and learning, rather than web 2.0 tools. Students tend to relate target learning to specialized learning and knowledge management environments, and not to specific web 2.0 tools. On the one hand, it has also been found out that web 2.0 tools are used by students as means of getting knowledge and information; on the other hand, the learners are not inclined to publicize or share the knowledge that they have created themselves.
