Social Networks are playing an important role in Education. However, many existing ones lack on ergonomics, which directly affects their potential as learning platforms. For this reason, pedagogical usability is of central importance during the development, as well as in the process of maintenance of educational social applications. As a consequence of incomplete and uneasy to use checklists for similar applications, as well as the nonexistence of usability guidelines for social networks as educational environments, this paper presents the first steps of a new usability guideline list. Feedback from the validation show that our guidelines are perceived as well constructed by experts.
