This paper proposes a framework for examining the impact of using social media for collaborative learning between researchers in two universities, namely the University of Jordan and Yarmouk University in Jordan. The proposed framework is based on the Constructivist Theory. The outcomes yielded significant correlations for the interaction with the student, interaction with teachers, engagement, the use of social media in education interaction, and behavioral intention to use social media for collaborative learning among university students. Limitations and future work are also presented.
