Advances in social network are increasingly becoming a valuable part of student learning experience. Yet, many practical issues such as student preferred learning materials and desired competences on social network often fall outside the scope of consideration in literature. This work in progress study is motivated by the need to integrate student preferred features into social network design and implementation. Accordingly, we intend to collect data from Information Systems students, analyze the data and use the results of our analysis to provide insight into the critical aspect of social network as a learning tool. These include the type of learning resources students perceive to be meaningful and useful as a social network learning opportunity; the competences students desire to acquire while learning with social networks; and the factors that inhibit student use of social network as a learning tool. These insights can facilitate the design, development and delivery of learning resources that are meaningful and useful to students, and support achievement of intended learning objectives.
