It is stated that using open-source Web 2.0 technologies in developing online learning, librarians can harness the power of virtual collaboration to impact student learning anytime, anywhere. Online learning is defined by International Association for K-12 Online Learning as education in which instruction and content are delivered over the Internet and does not include print-based correspondence education, broadcast television and stand-alone educational software programs. Online learning provides librarians with collaborative ways to infuse information literacy within K-12 curriculum.
