Did you just have an idea for OLnet? So this is the place to come and share it with the team!

This Wall was inspired by the Wall fo Ideas of the P2PU, by Philipp Schmidt... it's all about remix!

During our trial session on Elluminate today Giota proposed another way of having a Wall of Ideas - and that's by using the whiteboard feature of the tool. Something to keep in mind - thanks Giota!

A brief reflection from this morning's Eluminate test-session: I think the tool is quite fun and certainly appropriate for virtual workshops, presentations and demonstrations, as it combines discussion / voting tools and components for sharing and interaction (white board, app sharing, desktop sharing). 

It is not very intuitive to start with, and it may require participants to have a go and familiarise themselves in 'test-sessions'. But unlinke FM, it has some interactive features (i.e. the shared whiteboard), that may work well for playing out 'the wall of ideas' scenario.

Counter-reflecting: Cloudworks is a great place to keep a public and archived record of ideas. Besides it allows for elaboration and discussion. Perhaps Eluminate can help brainstorming during webminars...?

You could save the Elluminate whiteboard as a .jpeg or similar and embed it in the activity Cloud. I really like the idea of a wall of ideas on the whiteboard :)

this is one suggestion of the 'not-so-big' (yet academically-interesting) variety: a study tracing the evolution of the OER movement (following some comments to OER + HE discussion)

Giselle, I don't understand what the 'not so big' is. Is it something that came out during the Eluminate session? I messed it so I am struggling to understand. Can you explain please :)? Thanks a lot

hi Anna - you're right, that ended up a bit cryptic ;-) This emerged from a discussion yesterday (Activity 1 cloud) with Giota following Andreia's prompt questions, when we were talking about some of the assumptions of the UNESCO toolkit. Originally I thought that tracing the 'history' of the OER movement wasn't such a 'big' idea because some of it is already re-told (in Section 1 of the Toolkit itself), but in the discussion the idea got unpacked a bit as Giota moved my brain from historiography to discourse analysis.

As I say, 'not-so-big', just academically interesting ;-)
