    • “ The OU is a huge community and there are many web designers and developers. Until early this year we were a rather fragmented bunch but Twitter has brought us together. Not only web designers and developers but librarians, academics and support staff across the main campus and the regional and national centres. I’m talking to people in departments I didn’t even know existed and hearing about many interesting and exciting projects”
