DAY ONE - 28th July 2010

(All project showcases will be held in Room 1-05)

  • Demo #1 - 11.30 - 12.00 - One Share - University of Southampton

Re-imagining Teaching and Learning Repositories in a web2 world – for everyday teachers with everyday resources;  for institutions and communities.  The OneShare project has developed T&L repository based on and distributed through ePrints.
• Simple, open look and feel
• Web 2.0 at the heart
• User identity at the forefront
• Pages are about content, with inline previews
• ‘Deposit once’ links with VLE’s and other repositories

  • Demo #2 - 12.15 - 12.30 - Xpert Repository - University of Nottingham

The xpert repository is a distributed repository of learning materials, allowing users of our Xerte Online Toolkits to share and reuse content, as well as harvesting content from a wide range of public OER RSS feeds.

  • Demo #3 - 12.45 - 13.00 - Mobile Campus Assistant - University of Bristol

We will demonstrate our prototype website that makes existing campus-related information available to University of Bristol students via their mobiles and location-aware smart phones. This open source software approach could be used by other Universities to give a 'where is my nearest...' service, combining up-to-date information from campus sources (e.g. PC availability) with external public data and services including Google maps and transport timetables.

  • Demo #4 - 13.15 - 13.45 - Finding 'free to use' Digital Media - JISC Digital Media

This presentation and demonstration will highlight how people can find and source digital media objects to support teaching and learning.  We will discuss trusted sources of content (e.g. JISC Collections) and search techniques for dealing with the content made available from other sources.

  • Demo #5 - 14.00 - 14.30 - Online contect can be highly accessible, is yours? - JISC Techdis

Equality and Diversity are not specialist subjects - they affect us all, whether we’re visually impaired, suffer slow internet connection, have English as our second language or simply struggle with technology. We are all ‘unequal and diverse’ and JISC TechDis can demonstrate strategic solutions which support inclusion and are value for money.
The session will highlight how JISC TechDis has supported projects such as Curriculum Design and Delivery and OER  by using tools like Xerte,, the Accessibility Passport Generator, and the Online Evaluation Service

  • Demo #6 - 14.45 - 15.15 - Taking control of your working world - University of Hull

This demonstration will feature a personalised, ‘learner controlled’ online environment supporting an individual’s continuing professional development (CPD). Supporting aggregation of evidence and artefacts from a number of sources, this approach provides a framework that is both rich in functionality and extensible to support a wider range of inputs and outputs. We have designed an online resource that can be tailored specifically to individual needs, providing everything in one place. Resources include vocational and academic courses and modules, accreditation, performance tracking, support tools and programmes, knowledge exchange, reports, forums, access to professional and regulatory bodies, links to relevant organisations, and lot more besides

  • Demo #7 - 15.30 - 16.00 - Shared Architecture for eMployer, Student and Organisational Networking (SAMSON) - University of Nottingham

A practical demonstration of the SAMSON architecture will involve showing delegates how several different types of system can be integrated seamlessly into the SAMSON architecture and how multiple stakeholders (in different HEIs and in companies and other external organisations) can be given federated and securely authenticated access to these different resources.
The exhibition will show a practical demonstration of the SAMSON architecture and also provide a detailed technical overview of the methods adopted by the development team.

DAY TWO - 29th July 2010

(All project showcases will be held in Room 1-05)

  • Demo #8 - 10.30 - 11.00 - Sitting on a goldmine – Resource Use Data in UK HE

The MOSAIC project investigated the user activity data available in HE resource systems to benefit library managers, course designers, lecturers and (not least) students. The project and its developer competition built 7 demonstrators illustrating potential value, to be weighed against challenges of technology (scale, aggregation), data ownership and protection, data quality and value relative to alternative Web 2.0 services.

  • Demo #9 - 11.30 - 12.00 - Giving credit where credits due - MIMAS

A demonstration of the pilot name authority system that is being developed by the Names Project. The project is aiming to unambiguously identify UK research institutions and their staff. The demo will given an update on progress, with plenty of time for discussion.

  • Demo #10 - 12.30 - 13.00 - Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM), Newcastle University

This is a demonstration of ‘Dynamic Learning Maps’ which provide Web-based navigable maps of formal curricula, which individuals can extend and add personal notes/reflections, make connections between different parts of their map, and share/rate external learning resources. Different stakeholder perspectives (learners, teachers, curriculum managers) and evaluation findings will be discussed.

  • Demo #11 - 13.15 - 13.45 - The Design Studio: a Curriculum Design and Delivery toolkit - University of Northumbria

The Design Studio is a developing wiki-based toolkit hosted by JISC infoNet which draws together a range of existing and developing resources around curriculum design and delivery and the role technology plays in supporting these processes and practices.  This demo will introduce participants to the wiki and how they can contribute to its development.
