Using the forums on eel

  1. 1. Using the Forums on EELWhy use them?•To share and disseminate ideas or ask for comments and feedback•“crowd sourcing” – to invite colleagues to contribute their knowledgeon a topic, e.g., using the ELMS forum to ask for advice on how toset up reports, or other functionality issues, or using the EEHISTforum to share ideas on the best use of web 2.0 tools•For open peer review of articles or a particular piece of work, or toshare feedback and views of a particular event, e.g. training courses,conferences etc•For developing and creating training and educational materials – theinitial discussions could be made via the forum which avoidsclogging up inboxes and keeps the topic within the interested group•A forum for debate and discussion and a place to keep a record ofdiscussions, e.g., discussing topics of interest across the EoE likethe LQAF, library funding provision, future EoE training days etc
  2. 2. LQAF• 1.2c Active engagement with colleagues in other services -“active participation and contributing to local, regional and nationalnetworks”• Active = participating in and contributing to the network rather thanbeing a passive observer.
