Does Crowdvine have a way of bookmarking sessions you're interested in, but not attending (so you can find resources later etc) - As far as I can see, you can say you're going - (does it let you attend two things at the same time) - but not just interested; or do you need an external bookmarking system??
Okay, day one of ALTc conference in Nottingham. First task is to work out what I want to see/do. Shortly followed by – what do I use to schedule my time? Paper program, online? iPhone vs iPad vs laptop. Paper is easy to share / scribble on but the online program on cloudvine has “a schedule tool to create a personalized, exportable schedule. Guess I better check that out first, in the privacy of my room, with everything to hand before I decide. A... [read more]

I've just heard that a colleague (and usual attendee / presenter at ALT-C who can't make it this year) has been refused an account on CrowdVine. Is this because they are not attending, and if so - surely the aim of this site for ALT should be to widen the conversation and participation as much as possible? Personally, I'd like anyone to be able to see details of, and comment on, my session and related discussion; and I would like to read input fr... [read more]
Are you interested in the problem of how we share learning designs? The LDSE (learning design support environment) project is exploring ways of doing this. One idea is to offer teachers pre-existing pedagogical patterns, in both generic and specific forms. You could try this yourself: browse the patterns, adapt them – see how it feels. You can contribute comments and your own patterns to our collection. http://tinyurl.com/ldsepatterns See what yo... [read more]
At the University of the Arts London (UAL), we've been using Google Wave as a space to plan and share ideas with peers and receive critical feedback and support. In this workshop Paul Lowe and I will be exploring some interesting characteristics of Wave that we feel can affect the nature of the exchanges that take place through it. We'll also be looking at some examples of the way we've been using Wave, and some tips to make this flexible and com... [read more]

There is some interest coalescing around a critique of the place of technology in [higher] education, and its interplay with the dominant form of political economy. Joss Winn and I will be leading a discussion of whether the use of technology in HE is becoming more 'efficiently unsustainable': http://altc2010.alt.ac.uk/talks/15073 Meanwhile, Dave White will be raising some thorny issues in discussing how online distance learning could help mainta...

Are there any delegates from institutions that have rolled out the Google Application stack for their students. I would really love to hear how its working out and how its being used to support teaching and learning?
Each year the ALT Newsletter publishes a report on ALT-C and we are looking for volunteers to write this year's conference report. Ideally, we'd like 3 or 4 people to collaborate on writing the article, so this is an excellent opportunity to get your name in print and work with others. The report should be between 1,000-2000 words and describe the conference in terms of a general overview, interesting sessions, award winners, social events and an... [read more]
Who is out there with experience as we have a 6 month trial and would love to make contact with you and your experience? Yrs, Annette
Welcome to all who maybe new to Nottingham / from outside the UK. I am too really having travelled here from the UAE. But have had a chance to explore and its a lovely city. Take a stroll around the Park near the castle - its a park of houses and very tranquil. Gives you a nice feeling of an English village in the middle of the city. See you at the conference. Best Linzi
While it's unlikely that the half a billion facebook users will suddenly decide to book for ALT-C 2010 at the last moment, the small community huddled around the conference Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ALTC2010) seems to appreciate this alternative information channel. Latest development is to pipe in content from aggregated "official" conference blogs (also available as a Google Reader bundle if you prefer (http://www.google.com/reader... [read more]
This post is mainly aimed at my fellow 'web participation coordinators' but Seb suggested we discuss things here so that others on the programme committee can chip in if they wish. Feel free! Apologies in advance that this is a bit of a brain dump following today's meeting. So, in no particular order, topics to be added to, expanded, shot down etc etc - Development & Facilitation of Crowdvine - ALT's 'output': keynote/invited speaker live streami... [read more]
