  • A journey through Bb over the ages for our recently joined friends from WebCT and Angel!
  • Experience and resources brought together in BbWorld (San Diego) and Bb Europe (Edinburgh) in 2006. ABC – access, basics, community were the fundamentals. I would probably now say Accessibility, Brand, Community
  • Make as many things as possible one click – ideally less than one click.
  • Branding was important. Don’t underestimate a good marketing ploy!
  • This was a great portal use of video case studies in 2006 and still is.
  • My top ten (in no particular order, and not the order they’re about to come in!)
  • Ohio videos have people inviting you in and then close up screen shots. Would like to meet this guy after seeing lots of his videos and several hair styles 
  • Trying to minimise people having to think how to find what they want, or even what they want. Need to make it all easier.
  • Ready meals prepopulates basket with lots of resources relevant to a topic you choose.
  • Dynamic search instantly narrows
  • https://eat.scm.tees.ac.uk/ImageLibrary/gallery.htmlHelp yourself.
  • https://eat.scm.tees.ac.uk/ImageLibrary/gallery.html
  • Model good practice. People need to see what they can make/be helped to make their courses look like.
  • Don’t underestimate time spent on making things look nice either 
  • From the presentation I gave to switch jobs in 2005,what are the key requirements and challenges to implementing a VLE.
  • This was a key slide. Don’t just hire geeks unless they have people skills. Difficult skill set to acquire, hire and retain. Don’t consider them cheap and disposable, you’ll regret it!
  • Everyone has drivers. We have a big one...
  • I’m not so worried about the red 90, it’s ‘down’ from last year, but still, it’s not 47. Anything nearer 50 I want to work on. (Usually they’re around feedback and assessment). The university cares what our exiting students say in satisfaction surveys. I care about how to make that better for the next year’s students not say the same. Like – put your assignment title where they can see it in Bb, not on p. 36 of your attached module guide...
  • Our E-learning Framework. Available as a pdf.
  • Last year’s BbWorld presentation was on the querying of data longitudinally against the Framework. All still going in the right direction 
  • Use EricKunnen and Santo Nucifora’s great building block Astro to get your data.
  • Is a document dump a virtual learning environment? Really?
  • Connecting field trips or problem-based-learning direct from Second Life to Bb
  • Arts students opportunities to explore
  • Perfect representation, which staff will be ‘familiar’ with when it opens (newly built) in 2011
  • Come on in and work with us at Teeslife!
  • Staff Lounge in Second Life
  • Remember the poster presentation from BbWorld 2007?!
  • Watch videoed lunchtime seminars
  • Read up what we’re doing
  • Podcast is more relevant faculty &gt; students, less so central support &gt; faculty.
  • Some of the things we do
  • We tweet as @elearningatees
  • Check out Kaltura. Good multimedia. We blog at eat.scm.tees.ac.uk/blog
  • I don’t teach to teach tech.
  • You can lay a lot of groundwork virtually/electronically, but you need to buy them lunch sometime. And then when you’ve created f2f relationships, you need to nurture them. Virtually is good. But getting together to share ideas – like now – also helps. Thanks for listening.
  • Here’s that list again.
  • You can always (well, for a while anyway) find me on Teeslife, on twitter, or on slideshare.
