  44. 44. Thursday, 24 February 2011
  45. 45. Start EarlyThursday, 24 February 2011
  46. 46. Effective amplification of an event requires momentum, so it is important to start early. This means talking publicly (and encouraging others to do the same) about the build up to the event; booking, directions, #DR11 = DIGITAL RESEARCHER 2011Thursday, 24 February 2011
  47. 47. Agree a method to archiveThursday, 24 February 2011
  48. 48. As explained in the background section above, tags are crucial to amplifying events as they enable the aggregation of what would otherwise be disparate information. For most web services, blogs (such as Wordpress or Blogger) or photo sharing sites (such as Flickr) a simple alpha-numeric tag is sufficient. For Twitter, it is useful to prefix the tag with the hash character (#). The important thing is that the tag is both unique to the event (so that only items related to the event concerned are aggregated) and short (so it is easy to input). #dr11 can be aggregated.Thursday, 24 February 2011
  49. 49. Thursday, 24 February 2011
  50. 50. Promote this archiveThursday, 24 February 2011
  51. 51. Just having a tag or hashtag is not sufficient; participants (and potential participants) need to know about it, so advertise it as widely as possible as soon as possible.Thursday, 24 February 2011
  52. 52. Build a NetworkThursday, 24 February 2011
  53. 53. It might be that the event concerned has a number of people involved who are already part of an existing network, that is to say they already know each other, perhaps in person, or perhaps through interacting online. This means it will be more likely that they will be comfortable with interacting with each other at the event and reduces inertia and generates momentum. To build a network, look out for who is using the tags or hashtags (set up alerts via RSS or FriendFeed) and start conversations.Thursday, 24 February 2011
  54. 54. Be Inclusive If a network is already up and running it can be a bit intimidating for newcomers if they are not used to interacting in this way. Inclusivity should be encouraged by simply being welcoming and friendly to newcomersThursday, 24 February 2011
  55. 55. Getting permissions from people applies largely to photographs. If you are going to be posting photos of people online (which will be discoverable by search because the event is so well amplified) make sure you get participants permission. The easiest way to do this is via booking form or sign in sheet with a check box for people to opt out and an instruction for them to make themselves known to the organisers at the beginning of the event so that it is clear who does not want to be photographed. Get PermissionsThursday, 24 February 2011
  56. 56. Display the AmplificationThursday, 24 February 2011
  57. 57. It is unlikely that everyone who is physically present at an event will be participating online too. Therefore, in order to help everyone see what is going on you can project onto a screen a site which provides an up to date summary of everyones contribution (we used http://twitterfall.com but other free sites provide similar functionality). To enhance the experience for those who are participating online but are not physically present, also consider streaming video of what is going on in the room (www.ustream.tv).Thursday, 24 February 2011
  58. 58. AggregateThursday, 24 February 2011
  59. 59. Use tools to pull together multimedia into one place - which can also be used as an archive after wardsThursday, 24 February 2011
  60. 60. Thursday, 24 February 2011
  61. 61. Collect & archive data before it vanishesThursday, 24 February 2011
  62. 62. Information on Twitter is only retained for a finite period so it should be downloaded and recorded after an event (we usedhttp:// edumoodle.veloxserv.co.uk/twittertag/) if analysis of the sort described here is required.Thursday, 24 February 2011
  63. 63. ResourcesThursday, 24 February 2011
