Setting up a collaborative blog or wiki for distance learning students
For this project, I'm going to look into setting up a wiki or a blog for a group of doctoral students that I will be teaching early in October. Many of these students live and work abroad, so this will enable them to access the presentation with links to useful sites & information. I'm focusing on a small group of guinea pigs to assess how useful and successful it will be. If it's something that students appreciate and want, then we can use this as a case study to show management that we need to embed social media more into overall library policy, particularly relating to how we inform and teach our students.
