The Cochrane Collaboration is a global network of dedicated volunteers supported by a small staff who produce Systematic Reviews of healthcare interventions published in The Cochrane Library.
Cochrane on the web in one sentence:
Cochrane on the web consists of our flagship site, cochrane.org, along with roughly 80 other entity websites (Review Groups, Centres, Branches, etc.) as well as www.thecochranelibrary.com (WileyInterScience).
We have an account at del.icio.us/cochrane.collaboration
Mainly used so far to store collections of bookmarks related to projects we are working on (CMS Project, for example)
Replaces lists of links pages on internal websites, documentation we have – we can just add bookmarks their collectively under the same account and tag them appropriately and point everyone there: “look under tag ‘Drupal’” for example
Have considered using it more widely but haven’t as of yet
Podcasts are an excellent knowledge dissemination or “transfer“ tool especially for summarizing long and complicated pieces of information such as Cochrane Reviews
Technical challenges (learning how to use audio recording software, sample rates of .mp3 files can be tricky and movement of files via email among other technical aspects make Podcasts somewhat challenging to get off the ground)
Highly recommend setting up a Podcast feed and trying to record some Podcasts
