JISC Web2practice - 0 views

  •  
    This is a JISC backed site covering the use of Web2.0 tools in all areas of academic practice...research, teaching and administration. It's currently looking a bit thin (July 2009) but hopefully it will get fleshed out.

Adobe Connect Now - 0 views

  •  
    Adobe Connect web meeting app - available for free for up to three participants (including host - only one who needs to sign up). Participants simply go to the host's meeting room url (which is easy to remember) and can use webcams/audio, share screen/windows, type messages and meeting notes, use the whiteboard, exchange files.

    I have an account and tested it with Carl. For me - seemed to work well and could be a useful (and free) way of conducting, say, a tutorial with feedback for someone who couldn't physically be there for whatever reason. Anyone who wants to try, let me know and I'll invite you to the meeting room.

    Looks very good - liked the way it went straight to gmail to find contacts - lets try it more widely.

    We recommended this to the folks running a Clinical Dermatology course for holding their virtual tutorials and it seemed to work pretty well. It does require quite an up to date version of the Flash player which can be a problem...i.e. anyone attempting to use a student service machine or some staff with 'managed' computers won't be able to use it. I believe Electronic Engineering have forked out for the "pro" version...or at least they have in the past. As usual with Adobe stuff,,,it looks slick! DimDim is another web-conferencing thingy that seems to get a lot of press...haven't used it myself. Elluminate is another one that I've seen used at several meetings I've been to recently.

Higher Education in a Web 2.0 World - 0 views

  •  
    At last, I found this report...now I have to read it.
  •  
    This report is the result of "an independent inquiry into the strategic and policy implications for higher education of the experience and expectations of learners in the light of their increasing use of the newest technologies"

Universities' use of virtual technologies is 'patchy' - 0 views

  •  
    We probably shouldn't be unduly concerned with QM's apparent lack of progress in the Web2.0 area....yet....
  •  
    Article in the Guardian education about HE's use of Web2.0 technologies. It's driven by the publication of a report by Sir David Melville but highly annoyingly does not provide any reference for the report itself....I have managed to track it down....see the "Higher Education in a Web2.0 World" bookmark!

    Ignoring the headline (main story is better)...report due which considers affect/impact of web2.0 on learning and teaching.

    Michael Wesch video - July 2008 - good critique of the state of education and our failure to keep up with changes
  •  
    I have to admit that I'm a big fan of Prof Wesch. His "The machine is using us" video on YouTube is still one of my favourite Web2.0 resources. He's going to be one of the keynote speakers at the ALT-C conference in September this year...the conference has a terrible sounding theme.." 'In dreams begins responsibility' - choice, evidence, and change "...yuk.

    This seems particularly pertinent given all the recent activity in College around the 'Student Experience'. The lastest version of JISC Inform talks about this and this appears to be the launch of their "Student Experiences of Technology" campaign which is bound to yield something useful.
