The Spruce is on fire! : Exploring instagrams sociotechnical capacity for informal self formation courses (English)
Abstract [en]

This study explores instagram's sociotechnical possibilites for informal self formation courses, or so called "micro courses" as I've chosen to call them. The study was performed with design research as the main approach, where a instagram account was created and framed to resemble and function as a webbased course environment, where the learning occured exclusively using the social media app instagram. Five participants got the chance to test the microcourse which aimed to teach beginner finnish, and they were then interviewed individually about their opinions and experience of taking the microcourse.

The results shows that the technical possibilities are there for a teacher or facilitator to upload different types of content to the platform, as well as with the different functions of Instagram design activities that can engage the user in various ways. The result also highlighted that the learning got an entire different presence in the daily lives of the users since it was conducted on a platform they already were accustomed to and comfortable with using. The study concludes with recommendations for future studies within the subject.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersöks instagrams sociotekniska möjligheter till informella självbildningskurser, eller s.k. mikrokurser som jag valt att kalla dem. Studien genomfördes med designforskning som huvudansats, där ett instagramkonto skapades med en specifik inramning för att efterlikna och fungera som en webbaserad kursmiljö där lärandet skedde exklusivt på plattformen. Fem deltagare fick testa på en mikrokurs i nybörjarfinska, och intervjuades sedan individuellt om deras åsikter och erfarenheter av att ha gått mikrokursen.

Resultatet visar på att det finns tekniska möjligheter för att som en pedagog eller facilitator ladda upp olika sorters innehåll, samt med instagrams olika funktioner designa aktiviteter som kan engagera användarna på olika sätt. Resultatet belyste att bildningen fick en helt annan sorts närvaro i användarnas dagliga liv då den bedrevs på en plattform användarna redan befinner sig på och redan är bekväma i. Studien avslutas med rekommendationer till framtida studier inom ämnet.
