I am extremely impressed by his work on the web site and I can only describe it as a remarkable achievement. The Spring 2000 Program benefited in more ways than one by his spectacular efforts in this respect. I have already mentioned the increased awareness among the students as to what program planning they needed to do and when to do it. Through the web site links there was an abundance of orientation advice and tips for those who took the trouble to explore the site thoroughly. There was a feeling of unity in the group on arrival which I have not witnessed before and I can only conclude that the web site was largely responsible for this. Throughout the program Harry photographed and reported on everything we did and put it on site for us all to savour. He offered various possibilities for the students to contribute to the site, but the limited access to internet at CLM was not in his favour. -
Hosting pictures of our group activities remained something best kept in a website rather than on BlackBoard. Collecting pictures taken by the group ought to take place. Setting a common site for sharing these seems like a good idea for 2008
Web 2.0 is here:
Adding new functionality may mean leaving the BlackBoard platform for a more flexible model such as DRUPAL or MOODLE
Making the project available for continued development remains desirable, and yet, potentially more difficult as additional functions are added.
