Notes
  • Th percentage of students who returned mindmaps was high because the mindmap was an assessed activity. The quality was variable of course, but it's the range portrayed which is also of interest.

  • Very useful and thanks for the Slideshare copy for those who were in the other sltc09 session. I found more success with Blackboard blogs than Elgg for students as it was a) constrained and b) contiguous with class activity for the purpose of quick reflection on the practical class: useful for module review. Would rather have had Elgg success but I suspect if we had an end of module blog mark then this would have attracted more attention. How many good mindmaps (%?) do you get returned?
