Cloudworks

Cloudworks | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

"Cloudworks is being developed by the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University. It is part of the Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) project and is funded by both the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and The Open University. ...

 

What is it? Cloudworks is a social networking site for finding, sharing and discussing learning and teaching ideas and designs.


Core concepts. There are two key concepts associated with Cloudworks - the notion of 'Clouds' and 'Cloudscapes'.


Clouds. A Cloud can be anything to do with learning and teaching. Each Cloud is 'social' in that it is possible to have a conversation around the Cloud. A Cloud could be: a short description of a learning and teaching idea, information about resources or tools for learning and teaching, detailed learning designs or case studies of practice or a question as a starting point for a discussion.


Cloudscapes. Clouds can be aggregated into 'Cloudscapes' associated with a particular event, purpose or interest. For example you can have Cloudscapes associated with a conference aggregating Clouds about conference presentations or tools and resources referenced. A Cloudscape can be set up for a workshop where Clouds might include workshop resources, tools or activities. Cloudscapes can also be more general for example to stimulate debate about a particular teaching approach. Clouds can be associated with more than one Cloudscape."

NOTE: This is an exciting project that combines the Big Data of Clouds with Open Educational Resources and social media. It should prove to be a valuable asset to folks in education and training.  A MUST HAVE resource.
