    ABSTRACT
    Using social media in education provides learners with an informal way for communication. Informal communication tends to remove barriers and hence promotes student engagement. This paper presents our experience in using three different social media technologies in teaching software project management course. We conducted different surveys at the end of every semester to evaluate students' satisfaction and engagement. Results show that using social media enhances students' engagement and satisfaction.
