Information for Delegates
What is Cloudworks?
Cloudworks is a place for people interested in sharing, finding and discussing educational
ideas and experiences. You can use it for:
Discussing or blogging a workshop or theme
Adding links and references
Sharing photos, videos and slides
Cloudworks is for anyone with an interest either formally or informally in education.
Cloudworks is an open site; anyone can view, register and add to any of the Clouds.
Step 1: Create an account. You can view everything on the site
without registering but if you want to participate you will need to
create an account. Go to Cloudworks and click on the red sign-up
tab. You will be sent an activation email to your email account.
Step 2: Set up a profile. Once you have registered, you can set up
a personal profile. Your profile page includes information about the
things you are interested in, the Clouds you have added, the
Cloudscapes and people you are following, and who is following you.
All the Clouds created by the people and Cloudscapes you are
following are also collected in your Cloudstream.
Step 3: Follow the event Cloudscape. The URL for the Event
Cloudscape is: www.cloudworks.ac.uk/ cloudscape/view/XXXX From
this page you can show that you are attending, see who else is
attending, view the Clouds added, add Clouds, see recent activity,
see the Twitter stream and set up an RSS feed.
Step 4: Add to the Clouds. You can discuss ideas, add comments,
links and academic references and embed rich media (videos,
slideshows, images) in any Cloud. You can also ‘favourite’
Cloudscapes, Clouds and links that you find interesting or useful
(these will then appear on your profile page).
