    • Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) Technological problems and solutions are constructed through the negotiations within and among relevant interest groups
    • A practical problem: No systematic way for students or staff at the Lincoln School of Architecture to access examples of high quality student work from previous years
    • Blank Use of Multimedia in a Lecture/Seminar Context Virtual Studio: Aims The Virtual Studio aims to . . . Integrate design practice with theory Archive the best student work alongside staff teaching materials Make past student work available as a learning resource & aid to teaching Broaden the range of media available for use in lectures & seminars Capture comments on work made by tutors, students and external experts Encourage more efficient use of space
    • Blank An Integrated Archive Virtual Studio: Features A web-based teaching/learning resource Combines digital samples of best student work (images, video and text) with slides & video of key buildings, links to external sites, etc. Used in a variety of contexts: studio teaching, student research, lectures & seminars Created and maintained by users, students & staff (Wikipedia) Exists within database stored on network & accessed via web-based search engine using keywords/ directories
    • The Virtual Learning Environment…
    • JORUM: The National Learning Objects Repository…
    • For video, we know this works…
    • For images, we know this works…
    • For bookmarks, we know this works…
    • Upload… Title… Tag… Describe… Share.
    • 'Open Access' Repositories: Originally subject-based, serving the science communities i.e http://arxiv.org (1991)‏
    • £14m (€17.7m) investment in repositories and preservation in UK Higher Education (2006- 9)‏
    • 122 Institutional Repositories in the UK (ROAR)
    • Only one ‘Teaching and Learning Object’ repository listed: EdShare http:// www.edshare.soton.ac.uk
    • UK Government research funding is partially linked to citation rates. Research Excellence Framework (REF) will use bibliometrics.
    • For text, Institutional Repositories appear to be working…
    • We’ve made some changes...
    • Can academics and students working in different disciplines be easily accommodated within the same archival space?
    • What’s next?
    • Looking at other (open source) tools:
      • Creation of a ‘Studio Community’
      • Wikis?
      • Web CMS?
      • Social networking tools? ( http:// elgg.org / )‏
      • Integration with external web service APIs?
      • SWORD (Simple Web-service Offering Repository Deposit) for Institutional Repositories?
      • Use the IR for storage but develop the studio in a separate application? i.e MACE ?
