Abstract

Rapid technological advances affected the field of education, as well as other fields. This fact creates the need of utilizing technology in education effectively. Another fact that emerges when the subject of education in technology is considered is Web 2.0 tools. Along with Web 2.0 technology, students get more active in education instead of remaining passive, and become more productive and more willing to share. In this study, MA and PhD theses focusing on Web 2.0 technology which are published on Council of Higher Education National Thesis Center database between the years 2010 and 2020 were investigated according to content analysis method. In this sense, 44 of the theses which were reached as a result of the review of the related database were analyzed under the categories of thesis type, thesis year, the university it was carried out, its language and the subject it reviewed. It was revealed as a result of the investigation of the theses that Turkish language is the most used language in the theses, that the subject drew more attention especially in 2019 as the number of the studies on the subject of Web 2.0 tools increased in the recent years, and that the number of the studies carried out in the state universities is more than the number of the studies carried out in private universities.
