JISC Been in existence since 1993 Follett report 2000: “ JISC is perceived as a UK success story, providing a network of world-class standard and a range of excellent services ” Informed by engagement with its communities JISC: If it didn’t exist it would have to be reinvented! JISC is an example of a  centralised shared service  which provides  economies of scale  and is pro-active in  promoting and delivering innovation  across the higher and further education sector.
Web Preservation  JISC: Identified importance of preservation of Web resources Funded UKOLN & ULCC to develop advice on best practices through JISC PoWR project Downloaded from the JISC PoWR site, comment on using JISCPress  or  purchase on Lulu.com Guide to Web Preservation  officially launched today Hashtag:  #jiscpowr
IWMW Community http://www.flickr.com/photos/milesbanbery/2695356356/
IWMW Since 1997 14 events Delegates  from all over UK Community of practice Networking, sharing, learning Discussions on themes about: What is the Web? Who controls it? Who are our users? How joined up is it? What about quality? What about community? What about new ways of working? IWWM Facilitators
We are suffering from the challenges of abundance provided by the Web 2.0 services We are seeing significant changes in how our community is working cf statistics in usage of JISCMail lists Times They Are A-Changin’
Other Web 2.0 changes Times They Are A-Changin At one stage it was  all about the CMS Used with permission
Times They Are A-Changin JISCMail (& Mailbase): Launched in mid 1990s Provided a sense of community People will to share & help each other Since 2003 significant drop in JISCMail usage.  Many posts now announcements: jobs, events, … Where is the community now? We have the infrastructure (Social Web, syndication & aggregation technologies, …). We have the technical & information literacy skills What’s missing?

Cuts, Cuts, Cuts Context today: Departments closing because they don’t make enough money – e.g. Middlesex University example Quangos losing funding because they are regarded as inefficient (Becta?)  Redundancies a real possibility Decline in community, end to growth? Where does this leave us?

What Happens Now? Days of growth have ended Web services will develop but with serious constraints One of the most important things now is  your professional social network :  use the next 3 days to develop it! IWMW 2010 can help you to explore these issues Make sure you prepare yourself for the future
How IWMW Sees Its Role Premier event for members of UK HE institutional Web teams Provide a forum for discussion, debate and sharing of best practices for supporting HEIS in provision of institutional Web services. Ensure institutions are well-positioned to exploit innovations which can enhance their services. Provides a forum for JISC-funded developments to be shared across the community and for feedback to be obtained. Provide a cost-effective national service for the Web management community across UK HE sector. Feel free to give comments on IWMW 2010 blog
But What of the Future? Possible that cuts and changing priorities could see the sustainability of IWMW questioned Should we: Stop doing it? Reduce length of event? Run it as a virtual or hybrid event? Allow commercial providers to provide alternatives? Look for new business models (e.g. greater sponsorship – the ‘Netsoft lecture’)? Please tell us what you think during the event

  • 33. How IWMW Sees Its Role Premier event for members of UK HE institutional Web teams Provide a forum for discussion, debate and sharing of best practices for supporting HEIS in provision of institutional Web services. Ensure institutions are well-positioned to exploit innovations which can enhance their services.

Please tell us what you think during the event

Editor's Notes

  1. We are suffering from the challenges of abundance provided by the Web 2.0 services We are seeing significant changes in how our community is working cf statistics in usage of JISCMail lists
  2. in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise philosophy at Middlesex was ranked a very impressive 14th out of all philosophy submissions...The university, it seems, has made its decision on the grounds that the department is not financially viable. Accordingly, the university has decided to concentrate its resources in areas where a better return is available."
