5 May 2011
Chapters 4 and 13 respectively discuss open, social and participatory media and associated open practices. This chapter will provide a case study of a social networking site, Cloudworks,
which has been developed to provide a space for practitioners to share and discuss learning and teaching ideas. It will describe the perceived need for the site, the vision underpinning its development, its functionality and an overview of some of the patterns of user behaviour we are seeing emerging in the site. It will apply the Community Indicators Framework described in Chapter 18 to explain these patterns of behaviour.
