JISC Web 2.0 webinar

Last week, Peter Murray took part on a week-long' webinar' dealing with Web 2.0 applications in higher education in the UK. His blog posts from the week are available on the Informaticopia blog. It was an interesting experience - daily hour-long presentations using a mix of audio, video, slide presentations and text-chat, interlinked with Moodle discussion fora.

For anyone interested in the outputs, or the process, the slides are available at Slideshare >>>, thanks to mark van Harmelen, one of the organisers of the event. The Moodle discussions can be found at moodle.cs.man.ac.uk/web2/ and you can still register as a guest.

Some interesting ideas were raised around the use of Web 2.0 in education, including how institutions might use external services and the issues involved. CHIRAD will be using Moodle and a variety of online tools, including Web 2.0 applications, for teaching; we will post here about our experiences.
