BuddyPress, the social network based on WordPress, is becoming more and more common in academic environments where it is used for organization, communication and learning. In this discussion we will go beyond the practical and into the human side of things to consider what effects social software might be having in the world of academia. Can we use our tools to get people to think differently? Does the use of open tools help bring openness to the context where they are used? Are BuddyPress and WordPress the best tools for the job? This talk will take the form of a guided discussion including the entire audience.

    It’s quite possible that there’s a problem with the SlideShare version (I don’t even see it because it’s Flash… I don’t feel like opening Chrome just for this). I created it in Keynote and support for it is so-so. Otherwise, the presentation is on iWork: http://lar.me/21c

    Feel free to contact me. I did use BP in some of my courses, since then.

  • BuddyPress in academic circles is particularly interesting to me. Is there something wrong with the images in SlideShare? I can't seem to have clear view of some slides.
