In doing so we&#x2019;ll cover the four points shown above.
Started - Simon Whittemore is the programme manager. Current tranche - Total funding - Tender for the evaluation is to go out soon - Planning underway for the next three years.
Hello - Andy Stewart Physical world Unfortunately Rob Allen couldn&#x2019;t be here Set up in 2008 Maintain active relationship: prog - advance 1st 2 years - 6 projects A range of staff development activities Online presence Support and synthesis
It may not be known to everyone here but we actually have an abundance of information already available from a range of resources.
JISC Website - More formal information about individual projects such as duration, cost, general overview and any final reports that come from those. JISC Advance Website - Signposts resources available from across the services and RSCs. BCE Blog - Provides highlights, news and updates on BCE what&#x2019;s going on in and around the area. We also try our hardest to publish resources that come out of events, meetings so that others can make use of the information in different ways. So for example we have YouTube and SlideShare accounts.
Having worked in this sector for 7 years now I know how frustrating multiple sources of information can be, so if i was to give you one tip in keeping up-to-date with BCE it would be to use the blog whether you look at it regularly, register for updates via email or add it to your RSS reader. If anyone wants to know more about those functions feel free to grab me afterwards.
A&E Supporting Staff Training, CPD and Exchange SME Engagement Embedding BCE Bottom of what aid/prevents BCE becoming embedded Focus on systems and processes Particularly those from functions within an college/institutions The project completed Dec 09 and is available online SME e-Empowerment Not to be confused with the engagement project Producing a package - colleges/institutions - SMEs Focuses on online proficiency Trialling Collaborative Online Tools for BCE Focus on external partnerships - crossing the boundary 8 Trials - Elluminate, Ning, CRM Systems, Blogs etc.
And finally we&#x2019;d just like to thank everyone in the room for what we&#x2019;ve achieved to date. Everyone now recognises BCE as a strategic priority and it&#x2019;s presence as one of the JISC Advance strategic themes is evidence to that. The time and effort in contributing to this agenda over the last couple of years has been fantastic. Thank you.
