  • 13. The Web is Important!
  • 14. The Web is Important!
    • Remit to:
      • “ consider impact of newest technologies (social networking & mobile devices) on behaviour & attitudes of students coming up to & just entered higher education & issues this poses”
    • Recommendations:
      • JISC continues to develop a research and support programme into the use of Web 2.0 for all aspects of university business
      • JISC works with the HE funding bodies and Universities UK to explore issues and practice in the development of new business models that exploit Web 2.0 technologies
  • 15. The Web is Important!
    • Drivers:
      • “ The forces now confronting higher education have been called 'a perfect storm’. They are serious challenges. [HEIs] can no longer depend on ever-increasing allocation of funds”
      • “ This seminar feels a bit like sitting with a group of record industry executives in 1999 ”
    • Conclusions:
      • Universities need to respond by reaching out – they are becoming ’edgeless’
      • A renewed commitment to openness
      • Experimentation and investment
      • New tools to support teaching
  • 16. The Perfect Storm
    • How will your institution respond to 20%(!) cuts?
      • Be innovative
      • Focus on core services, ditch others
      • Do the same as now only less
    Factors: Economics; environment; student expectations; Social Web / Web 2.0
  • 17. We Are Important
    • Some questions to reflect on?
      • Who is best placed to implement the reports’ recommendations?
      • Who has a better understanding of the risks and challenges?
      • Who can regard the reports as providing opportunities for their profession, department and institution?
  • 18. Opportunities at IWMW 2009

      • An opportunity to experiment
      • An opportunity for risk-taking
      • An opportunity for networking
