Abstract: Curriculum design in a technology based learning environment that utilizes social networking tools and platform can support pedagogy via application of learning and instructional design theories, frameworks and methodologies that support social learning in a technological environment. This report will suggest curriculum design methodology that adheres to constructivist learning theory, use of a problem-based instructional design model and application of the Community of Inquiry framework for instruction. It is suggested that theoretical frameworks and methodologies that recognize the impact of social interactions and communication on learning outcomes, can also be applied in a technological medium that utilizes social media as a communication tool. The technological medium in this report will apply to the online learning environment, learning management system, utilized in the workforce setting for the delivery of training and instruction.

Keywords: Social networking, Community of Inquiry, Technology Based Learning Environment
