Since 2006, Paris Descartes University has been using Elgg, an open source social networking platform, as a tool for all faculty members and students called Carnets2 Descartes. Carnets2 is used for any activity: from teaching and research to non-academic activities. Students learn how to manage their digital identity and to advertise their skills at the university level and also openly. Student articles and documents can be browsed and reviewed by any faculty members as a first move to social learning. An Elgg module has also been developed for mentoring student training. Carnets2 will soon be open to alumni. Carnets2 has been defined by the University President as a strategic tool for building a strong academic membership and strengthening the bonds between faculty, students and alumni. The next steps will be to develop better interaction / integration between Carnets2 and uPortal / Moodle.
