  • Use of Web2.0 tools by students & staff, digital / information literacy, research / study skills, support by libraries, lectures and learning support. Wider application – teaching in ODL; supporting campus-based students
  • Explain web2.0 Broader definition used by many Narrower: PARTICIPATION / SOCIAL - Participatory aspect of web2.0 – social, communicative especially important to ODL
  • Content focused, even when using “web2.0” tools Blogs Social Bookmarling to provide collections
  • Content Driven Traditional Guides Sometimes ODL focused but not always… Some “web2.0” Blogs Social Bookmarling to provide collections
  • Online Tutorials Media sites screencasts
  • Elements of Web2.0 Delicious is the engine behing it but this is not “social” bookmarking…
  • US Association of Research Libraries (predominantly universities)
  • First one – 2 campus based UK unis UGs TALL - VLE
  • Jones, 5 UK universities Students weak at Critical thinking, referencing properly, Information management Mixed picture BUT overall: Limited use by students of web2.0 (beyond Facebook) 1) For studies 2) Of more ‘academic’ web2.0 tools 3) Even when embedded in curriculum
  • Making it more participative / communicative; more of an active role for students & staff. e.g Personal Learning Networks – my use of Twitter. Real SOCIAL bookmarking Social networking for learning – e.g. Twitter, Friendfeed, Facebook. Collaborative exercises – e.g. students collaborate to produce screencast?? Feeds – google reader, sharing, commenting…
  • Small changes to make exiting practice more web2.0
  • Making it more participative Real SOCIAL bookmarking Social networking for learning – e.g. Twitter, Friendfeed, Facebook. Collaborative exercises – e.g. students collaborate to produce screencast?? Feeds – google reader, sharing, commenting…
  • Cultural / Pedagogical – participative is not how courses are taught. Didactic delivery & independent study is the main mode teaching staff are familiar with. Use of technology reflects that. Time Change
  • Students & staff don’t make much use Don’t understand the potential Need for staff development
  • Exeter Survey Workshop for Librarians in HE/FE June 2010 Not distance learning focus Developing students’ information management skills to match the 21 st century internet RSS Readers & social Bookmarking 18 responses Nearly all (1 not sure!) felt students needed training & support 7 run sessions on Web2.0 tools /services for students
  • Staff development is Key. Students need help Helps needs to come from Uni staff Staff need help – start with basic skills Must focus on uses – new ways of teaching as much as the technologies Same as always but perhaps more so for ODL – information literacy in the curriculum
