Aber Presentation for Trinity Gwella CAMEL

  1. 1. M A R Y JA C O B S ' P R E S E N TAT I O N F O R T R I N I T Y C A M E L 4 T H A U G 2 0 1 0  Our Nexus site – part of our Gwella projects, showcases good practice at AU and in the sector, searchable and tagged for key areas http://nexus.aber.ac.uk/ We will be expanding this further under Building Capacity. o If the group wanted, we can explore using a corner of it for linking to your case studies. I have no objection to using the ELESIG Ning site, but just offering to explore using our Nexus one - it does have tagging, is already associated with Gwella, and is hosted here at Aber. It has five main sections so far: o Good practice guides - http://nexus.aber.ac.uk/xwiki/bin/view/Main/guides o Resources – http://nexus.aber.ac.uk/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Resources will be expanded in the coming weeks, here is the page on Web 2.0 http://nexus.aber.ac.uk/xwiki/bin/view/Main/resources+web+2 o Case studies at Aber o Sector reports – from conferences, meetings etc o News – timely info (this is a blog) http://nexus.aber.ac.uk/xwiki/bin/view/Blog/  Twitter – o used by Marketing and by Information Services for news, not used much by staff for teaching but there is interest in exploring the possibilities. o The main use of Twitter seems to be tweeting from conferences, and sharing/retweeting links to useful pages o Here are our bookmarks for using Twitter: http://delicious.com/is_alto/twitter  Facebook – o used by Marketing for prospective and incoming students, http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#!/group.php?gid=192481030 98&ref=ts o and by Information Services for alerts etc http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#!/pages/Aberystwyth-United-
  2. 2. Kingdom/Aberystwyth-University-Information- Services/261854490761?ref=ts&__a=20&ajaxpipe=1 o not used by academic staff much but there has been interest in some departments in doing so o students sometimes set up groups independently  Blogs – o Non-Campus Pack blogs used by Marketing – Aber insiders student life blogs, next year will use video http://insiders.aber.ac.uk/ o Our bookmarks for blogs http://delicious.com/is_alto/blog  SlideShare, YouTube, Flickr – o Not much data on how these are used yet but our Gwella student experience study next year will cover this. There is some concern about IPR. We stress Creative Commons. o Blackboard 9.1 as you know has the mash-up which might increase uptake  Delicious – o E-learning Support uses and promotes it. Join our network! http://delicious.com/is_alto o Academic staff aren’t using it in teaching much but find it useful for research o Our bookmarks about bookmarking http://delicious.com/is_alto/socialbookmarking and networking http://delicious.com/is_alto/socialnetworking (there is some overlap, naturally)  Campus Pack – o Blogs and wikis used quite a lot by academic staff in teaching, well-received by students in general. o Our bookmarks for Wikis http://delicious.com/is_alto/wikis and podcasting http://delicious.com/is_alto/podcasting ***************************************************************************
