  • To begin with – I’ll talk about this in relation to the Ashridge website.
  • Britain’s Cabinet Office regularly blog... Helping open up government to the general public
  • MBA Blogs – Takashi TusutsumiAnd you have to trust your staff and – in Ashridge’s case - students to do what’s right… because it’s impossible to vigilate every blog post by every student in every language.
  • Twitter is a message to the world in 140 characters or less. It isn’t, as Twitter originally thought, ‘what are you doing now?’….but it is sharing knowledge, tips, ideas, news and links to people you don’t know from Adam, Eve or any of the other biblical figures.
  • This is my Twitter feed from yesterday...and you can see that everyone is talking about news, developments, technology...
  • But more importantly for business, you can set up a private Twitter system, or group, and get the organisation to communicate through short messages – which could be broadcast on the Intranet or to a specific screen on the shop-floor.More instant, more accessible and easier to digest than emails.
  • And you can learn the meaning in Swahili too.In the old days, you could have a community notice board…
  • This is a Wiki we set up for the Executive MBA group for the operations module… where they collaborate on their revision – there’s a page for each topic. And they also start thinking about the future of operations and e-nabling the operation.
  • And for my own Learning Support Group on my Exec MBA course, we’re using a Wiki to collaborate on group assignments and also our revision.So what we’re talking about, is:
  • Anyone can now go to Innocentive and post a problem...and see if someone can solve it.
  • Or Company intranet directories should be more than simple phone books...these are examples provided by Tony Sheehan, who used to be in charge of Knowledge Management at Arup.
  • It is easy to find someone who is an expert on a particular subject
  • And you might find that their hobbies are useful too... Or not....
  • Ashridge’s E-Sharing system allows classes to communicate, share, collaborate, discuss…
  • Only 58 members on the Ashridge MBA group on Facebook
  • 1295 members when I last looked on the Ashridge Alumni group on LinkedIn
  • The Ashridge Consulting webpage shows a tag cloud of different content on the left.. And links for easy bookmarking at the bottom of the page.
  • VLRC Aggregation portal, ‘Global Perspectives’ allows users to tag and bookmark their favourite content.
  • Or just to market ideas – such as Sustainable business.Some are better than others
  • Podcasts have been used to update engineers in the field with new training – sent directly to their PDAs.
  • From weather, to maps, to currency convertors etc.
  • so they created a protest in Second Life2000 people – or avatars – including penguins and dragons… turned up at the IBM offices in SecondLife. They disrupted the meetings taking place and forced IBM back to the negotiating table – where they obtained a better deal.
  • Ashridge from the air
  • In reality
  • And we even have virtual squirrels
  • And an Italian Garden… and the floating figure there was my first attempt at personalising the appearance of my avatar.Everyone made their avatars beautiful and muscular and slim…
  • He turned me black!... And the advantage of SecondLIfe is that people of different races, religions, cultures, backgrounds and abilities can be whoever they want. You don’t know if someone is in a wheelchair.20% of female avatars in SL are, in fact, men!And now we can see some interesting uses of SecondLife for education and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs…
  • You can also find people using Second Life at the high-school and undergraduate level to teach various issues, such as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.This was by Jackie GersteinTeach graduate-level online courses for the MA Ed. in Educational LeadershipKaplan University
  • The sense of community reflects the native American community culture of Jackie’s state of Iowa…
  • This was Jackie showing me around
  • And the NHS has built an ‘ideal’ hospital to help teaching…
  • With an urban environment – with accidents
  • I met 2 people walking down the street here…before they flew off
  • London Tube
  • A module concentrating on Stress…showing how certain situations can lead to stress…
  • University of California: Davis – set up the Hallucinations Building 5 years ago to show what schizophrenia is like to experience it… They built the building in conjunction with two schizophrenics… Look at the poster….
  • When you look at it again, the words change…
  • Michele Ryan from Lancaster wrote a paper on how to use SecondLife for education and in general…...and if any of your LSGs want to use the Ashridge Second Life campus to meet – let me know and I’ll set you up with permissions to enter.

    124. 124. Podcasting<br />Downloads of audio or video content that can be listened to later on a computer or transferred to an mp3 player (etc.). <br />Not to be confused with ‘streaming’ where you listen to the audio/watch the video as it comes directly from the provider’s website and cannot be stored on your own machine. <br />However, they are far more complicated than Blogs to set up and don’t generally allow interactivity.<br />They can be one-off recordings or a series of episodes, which users can automatically download.<br />
