Web 2.0 technology has caught much attention in e-learning due to their interactive nature, ease of use and readily availability. The extent to which web 2.0 technology supports interactive e-learning is however unclear. To adequately address this issue, this paper investigates the extent to which web 2.0 technology supports interactive e-learning and how web 2.0 technology influences the effectiveness of e-learning. Structural equation modelling is used for validating a proposed conceptual model using the survey data collected from Australia. The results reveal that web 2.0 technology support personal knowledge management, collaboration, instructional support and management of learning resources which are critical for interactive e-learning. Furthermore the results also show that the use of web 2.0 technology has a significant indirect impact on the effectiveness of e-learning in higher education in Australia.
