dc.description.abstractIn an Information Technology course, learners are expected to learn about the use of technology. They need to be able to program, do mathematics and statistics, and should also have other technical subjects. Although learners sometimes struggle with the logical thinking necessary for becoming a good programmer, the ones who grasp programming easily, tend to struggle with the different approach necessary for a subject like Systems Analysis and Design (SAD). Learners are confronted with overwhelming amount of theoretical material that is often repeated in different contexts – something which confuses them. They are also sometimes overwhelmed by the use of a textbook which covers extensive material. Bearing this in mind, this study sought to use Social Networking Sites (SNS) and Instant Messaging (IM) to assist students in preparing for their examination. Interpretive research is used to qualitatively analyse the communication between the lecturer and students and also among the students themselves. Along with the identification of themes in this communication, the fifteen modal aspects introduced by the Dutch philosopher, Herman Dooyeweerd, are used to analyse and understand the use and value of mobile technology in an educational context.en_US
