Discussion: The development of cloudworks

Cloud created by:

This cloud has been set up as a space to discuss cloudworks. The vision for the set is that it aims to be a site that applies web 2.0 practices in an educational context; a place to share, discuss and find learning and teaching ideas. A recent Computers and Education paper gives an overview of our approach and work to date.

  • To what extent does the site achieve these aims?
  • A question we are often asked is what makes this different to other social networking sites, like elgg and ning - what are your views on this?
  • What are the challenges a site like this faces - in terms of getting users to use it, in terms of sustainability, in terms of issues to do with quality assurance?
