Today, using and accessing to Social Network Services (SNS) are part of our daily activities and have gained popularity to attract learners in the socialization engagement. This motivates the adoption of Social Network Services into collaborative learning environment which strongly encourage communication and interaction between learners. The engagement of learners to use the learning system is always a challenge to improve as they are easily distracted, lack of motivation and interest. The factors which contribute to the problems are mainly the availability of the learning resources, variety of the communication mode within the system, and also lack of real time interaction. With the implementation of Social Network Services (i.e. Facebook services and Twitter services) into collaborative learning environment, learners will feel motivated and engage more eagerly with the learning process as reflected from the heavy usage of social media recently. Real time communication and interaction are being promoted and learners can express and share real thoughts and feelings with the help of SNS while going through the learning process. In this proposed work, we design and implement a SNS-integrated collaborative learning system that allows learners to collaborate and learn anytime and anywhere. We have chosen the subject domain of learning programming language to realize our proposed solution.
