Sara Daraei
Abstract—The purpose of this research is to find out how Facebook creates a positive effect when used in education; and to investigate students' satisfaction about their learning via Facebook compare to traditional education system. This experimental study was carried out with two groups of 10th level students and each one consisted of 20 members. One group was educated in real classroom (traditional education system) and the other one was educated by using Facebook (online learning environment). The study took 13 weeks and 52 hours. Data was collected using a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire created by the author and entitled “Students' opinions and satisfaction about their learning”. It was completed by students at the beginning (pre-experience test) and the end of the study (post-experience test). Results show that, if Facebook is used for educational purposes, it could bring about a positive change in students' satisfaction. Results also indicate that Facebook virtual environment helps students to do many activities with online classes, which is not possible to be done in schools. This study shows that using Facebook environment helps students not only to improve their satisfaction about the course and what they learn during of it, but also it would improve their exam's grades. Based on the findings, recommendations are made about using Facebook in education.

Index Terms—Facebook, virtual learning environment, social networking, web 2.0 tools.
