Cloudworks is no longer accepting new user registrations, and will be closing down on 24th June 2019. We hope to make a read-only archive of the site available soon after.
Discussion: The development of cloudworks
Cloud created by:
26 October 2009
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?
