A demonstration of iSpot services including iSpot mobile

If you are based on campus please join us for this informal, face-to-face session, have a cup of coffee/tea (with biscuits!) and contribute to the discussion.  This event will be broadcast live online for every one to watch and will be recorded for replay.

Abstract: iSpot has a community of 36,000 users and is growing at a rate of around 1,000 users per month. Over the past 18 months a lot has happened!  New features and services have been added to iSpot, including a revised mobile app, geo-locational mapping, an intelligent quiz, ecological interactions and the move to support communities through internationalisation, localisation and translation services. iSpot is being used in many different ways, for example to support the National Geographic global ‘bio-blitz’, FutureLearn MOOCs and OU BBC T.V. series such as “The Great British Year”. My presentation will summarise this work and open the discussion on ‘where next for iSpot’.
