Welcome to experience web 2

  1. 1. Welcome to Experience Web 2.0 online course Russell Kenny
  2. 2. The course consists of: Eight, one week e-tivities, each one consisting of some research and hands on experimentation with an aspect of Web 2.0 technology and a short "blogged" reflection on the experience and it's application in HE. Reading other peoples blogs and sharing ideas will be central to the experience. The e-tivites will become available in Blackboard the Friday morning before the week of the activity if you want to get started early! Some weeks there is a choice of e-tivity. You can do either or both, depending on your available time.
  3. 3. At the end of each week, Russell will read your Blogs and write a Blog Summary. Blog supporters (mostly people who have done the course before) will be reading and commenting on your blog postings. We will be sending out Email reminders each week, but you should also put entries in your own diaries to reserve time each week to do the exercises. Online learning can be done in a flexible way, but don't let that flexibility push the exercises down your priority list! Treat the time reserved for these exercises in the same way as you would if it was a face to face course. The final e-tivity will allow two weeks to complete it. There will also be a course project, that can be as simple or as in depth as you want (and have time for). Over the eight weeks of the course, you should generally explore Web 2.0 tools other than the ones covered in in the course. You should try to find something that you might find useful in your area of work, and you should experiment with it. As part of the last e-tivity of the course there will be an opportunity to share your finds with other course participants and to reflect on how they might be applied in your work, and in HE in general.
  4. 4. The timetable for each week will be like this: On the Wednesday of the week before, the e-tivity for the next week will become visible so that you can preview it, and start early if you wish On the Monday of each week, the e-tivity officially starts Each e-tivity involves posting an entry into a blog. This should be done by Midday on the Thursday of the week. This is to allow others to see and comment on your posting, which is part of each week's e-tivity.. Comments for that week should be posted before the next week's e-tivity becomes available on the next Monday.
  5. 5. Each e-tivity consists of: • Some reading • An activity (typically experiencing using an online resource/tool)] • A sharing (posting to a blog, then reading and commenting on others postings) • A summary (reading a summary blog posting)
  6. 6. The e-tivities each week are the minimum that should be done. If you have time, there are also lots of resources in the Resources section that you can explore on your own. This BB site will be available to you after the course, so that you can explore this section of the site later, if you don't have time during the course. In order to pass the course, and get the LSBU Web 2.0 Experience Certificate, you need to have blogged at least 8 times (one per week) each blog at least 100 words. More if you want it!
