IBLC 10 - General - Using Cloudworks at IBLC 10

Cloud created by:

Cloudworks is an easy to use, open access and increasingly popular social networking site for Learning and Teaching.

The main motivation for using Cloudworks, is to provide our Conference delegates with an additional channel for discussing conference sessions, but also for discovering, sharing and exploring any other blended learning ideas, questions or experiences.

To start with we recommend you read the one page introduction to Cloudworks.  

The only small thing we would like to ask you is if and when creating new ‘Clouds’ in the Conference ‘cloudscape’, to please use the following simple naming convention:

IBLC 10 – <Session or Question or Idea or Experience or ...> - <title>

as in the following examples:

IBLC 10 - Poster - Using technology to make an existing effective assessment more efficient
IBLC 10 - Question - What are the principles underpinning good assessment
IBLC 10 - Question - What's your label? (Teacher, Facilitator, Academic...?)


Looking forward to talking to you in Cloudworks!

I wanted to post a question at the start of the day to ask "how many people at following and contributing to the discussion on Cloudworks, and how many on Twitter".

Unfortunately, I couldn't post this from my iPhone, so have had to wait until I have my laptop out.  So anyway of knowing the answer to what people are following?

As an aside, I have pulled together both activity streams via a Yahoo pipe at http://pipes.yahoo.com/ltiblu/conference so I guess we can do some post event analysis of the contributions.  Seems as though mid-afternoon as I write, Twitter is has more (easier from parallel sessions?) while there seemed to be a Cloudworks bulge over lunch.
