History/background of NTU before LOR little sharing – informal, e.g. through YouTube, Flickr, Delicious, web 2.0 mainly for use with students rather than colleagues. This was then shared within schools, not coherently across the university. anxieties existed around sharing, which we needed to resolve to get staff engagement (demonstrated by work on the VLE implementation project. Our model for staff engagement was based on that of the VLE implementation project, i.e.:Working groupsCollaborative project management Working on good relationships with academic colleagues in schoolsE-learning working groupE-learning user forumBuilding on the relationships we’d formed in the VLE implementation pojectProblems/issues Staff engagement – due to anxiety and needed change in NTU culture of sharing (enagagement at start cf now – still early days in terms of numbers of objects in repository and extent of use, but feedback on its popularity includes the number of requests we’ve had to present to school committees and meetings, and CPLD having offered to publicise our workshops, ALT disseminating throughout schools, events we’ve held have been solidly attended by core group of individuals.)Letting staff know about the LOR/publicity
