eLearning Community Event: User Generated Content
Location: Library Seminar Rooms 1 & 2

9 April 2013
What to do with UGC, how to support and whether to encourage and use/reuse it are issues which every module and teaching related project will encounter, whether intentionally or not. Forum messages, blog posts and wiki entries are some of the more obvious and familiar examples of UGC within OU teaching. The scope of UGC extends from video and photo-sharing to social networking exchanges (tweets, likes, ratings and reviews), part of a massive expansion in network traffic initiated and controlled by students. Whether generated formally as part of directed activity or informally and serendipitously, the quality and diversity of this content is challenging in terms of pedagogy, management and ethical/legal issues. This event will draw on a recent University-wide scoping activity and experienced users of UGC will present mini-cases from across the OU and encourage discussion of an issue which is evident in all our online teaching.
The recording of the event will be made available on Stadium.
As always, we aim to stick to time, so please feel free to drop in and out according to your availability and interest.
If you plan to attend, have any queries or wish to suggest a future event, please email IET-ELC-Admin.
