  • Thank you and thank you to everyone for taking time out of their busy day to join us on today;s webinarI want to take the next 20 minutes or so to introduce you the the GoingOn Community platform and most importantly, to provide you with some examples of how our customers and prospects are building communities across their social campus
  • Over 2 years ago, we started working with top academic institutions such as UPenn and Kaplan University to help understand how the social web would change the face of global education. WE knew then what we know now that legacy academic portals and learning management systems are not sufficient to meet the demands of the Facebook generation. I new generation of social technologies and models offers opportunities to connect, collaborate and learn in entirely new ways.The result of our research and development is the industries first integrated Community Platform, designed specifically to meet the needs of the education market.The GoingOn platform is a highly configurable allowing non-technical users to configure individualized communities as part of an institution-wide community network
  • What is a community? A community brings together a varying array of constituents around a engaging, participatory online environment that combines aspects of social learning, academic collaboration web publishing and knowledge sharingThe concept of communities and a social community platforms should not be confused with the generic concept of ”social networking”. Social networking, or the ability to connect with other users in a community network, is only a small feature set in a much broader social learning and collaboration platform. And as we sill see, the real value is not connecting around social relationships but rather, around areas of expertise and knowledge network
  • Within every campus, we envision a network of connected communities where user identities and and academic content flow freely between them. As we will see in a few minutes, communities can be built at many points in the academic lifecycleIn general, we have found 3 core types of communities that fall with in the context of the broad communities that Steve discussed Course communities - a social learning environment most complicated Community of Practice and Inquiry that can be built at multiple points outside of the course including department and program level, across areas of student life and other key areas of the academic spectrum Collaborative workspaces which focus around specific group interaction including cohort based project or even office hours
  • Let me introduce the GO platform by first talking about how communities are created and the types of features or widgets that can be included in a community.So the green box represents a network of communities . BUILDThe GO Configurator makes it easy for non-technical users to add a personalized community to the network simply by configuring a set of pre-built widgetsAs you can see there is a broad range of widgets built into the platform as well as integration to popular third-party social tools and services. For example ,we include integrated video player and services from Kaltura and are working on deep integration with Google docs, as well as synchronous communication platforms.BUILDAs communities are added to the network, a user maintains a single identity across all communities. The user dashboard provides a personalized view a users content and activities across all their communities. The unique self-service configurability and what we call our “network of community” design is at the heart of the GO platform,
  • As mentioned, the Go platform provides a single platform for creating a near infinite network of different types of communities.I want to quickly point out some core capabilities of the GO platform Most importantly, I need to point out that the GO platform is built on 100% open source components. Single content management engine that allows open syndication and search of content across communities, eliminating information silos found in traditional deployments Our innovative semantic knowledge network – xxxxThe underlying community of network architecture that we have discussed that is built to integrate to back-end SMS and LMS systems and lastly, we are working on integration to common social networks such as Facebook as well as mobile connectivity and apps
  • This is a screenshot of part of the user dashboardWhat you see is cccc
  • How will you engage the facebook generation? What new solutions will you provide to improve the quality and efficiency of education? How will the social web change the computing landscape? How will you enhance online learning? Are your ready for the Social Campus?What is a community is…play off of education/dictionaryWeb Com-mu-ni-ty [web kuh-myoo-ni-tee] –noun, plural –ties: 1) an online destination for a group sharing common characteristics or interests 2) an integrated web framework for social media publishing, web 2.0 collaboration, and social networking 3) a web site having a write/read design that allows user to easily contribute and maintain site content with no programming 4) a platform for building stand-alone communities that share a common content management and social networking platform, 5) an optional extension to existing website or legacy Learning Management System to enable social learning
