    Me Aggregator Project Overview Me Aggregator Project Overview Presentation Transcript

    • MeAggregator User owned technology demonstrator
    • Initial Aims • Produce a tool which makes it easier for learners to manage their ‘stuff’ • Hence easier to manage their Digital Identity – And their reputation • Enable users to engage with a Connectivist style of learning
    • Audience • People! • Initially students and staff at our institution – But actually, just people – Oh, and bears…
    • Approach • “Web 3” – using ontologies to support a distributed Folksonomical File System (FFS) • Supporting a trust network • Iterative design and refinement • Open Source by license and practice • Loosely coupled software components • Service Oriented Architecture
    • Findings & Issues • Working with 3rd party libraries can cause unexpected delays! • Loosely coupled components can be very robust, but hard to debug… (no, really?!) • Users have a range of creative uses for the tool (filing system, calendar…) • Some institutional systems are highly politicised
    • More findings & issues… • There are more services to connect with almost every day… • It is important to build community from day 1 • Building community requires a reasonably high level of resources • Everyone now seems to be interested in Digital Identity
    • Key take home Take time to re-evaluate approach & don’t be afraid to change. (we should have done it sooner)
