Web Participation - Ideas & Planning - Thanks Matt and Juliette for raising these issues What are the thoughts about the 'fringe' events organised last year (wetpaint site F-ALT)? Do we want to tie in with this area? There were some interesting things organised and many of the newbies many be interested in this too. I'm not suggesting that we make the fringe main stream as part of its a attraction for many is that it is separate. In terms of streaming/video recording etc etc What facilities do we have at our disposal at Nottingham? I am assuming we will have access to other lecture theatres/rooms on site not just in the East Midlands conference centre but on Nottingham site (I live 20 mins from Nottm site so know it well)? I worked at Nottingham for 10 years in the AV unit(Multimedia Design Manager) before it was split up. I worked as a manager along side the teaching rooms support staff manager Dave Halford.. not sure what are the overall requirements (we'll have to determine that) but I can talk to Dave if that helps? Nottingham are involved with a project called Steeple and at Lboro (where I work) we have the servers now for this project: May be we could tie into this in some way? Just a thought. If you need some assistance with the poster stuff (guide lines etc or anything else) I used to teach poster design for conference, not sure if that's any help or not? I'm all for seeing an APP for the iphone that is all conference, may be on other platforms too.. on the mobile front I did usability and mobile learning as part of my MSc so am happy to help with testing.. These are a few random thoughts.. let me know if they're of any use..?? I can be of help??? Sandra
