Dr Rosemary Quilling is a senior lecturer in the field of Information Systems and Technology at the School of Management, Information Technology and Governance at University of KwaZulu-Natal.
She is passionate about exploring social computing or Web 2.0 technologies, like Facebook, Myspace, flickr, Second Life and youtube because they are redefining how we communicate and create information: in business, education and even while socialising or searching for entertainment. She is the co-founder of the NextEd Global Initiative (NEGI). The NextEd philosophy is to provides a collaborative environment where all participants collaborate on an equal footing, and contribute and benefit in a collaborative style. As such the objective of NextEd is to employ Web 2.0 technologies that foster and enhance collaborative learning.
