Fortunately more people are deciding to do culture for themselves than remain passive witnesses to the pundits' debate. The place where they are doing it is online and they are not waiting to see whether their offering attracts the experts' approval - and sometimes, admittedly, one might argue more's the pity.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 editorial richard waller jisc microsoft ukoln university of leeds w3c citeulike preserv accessibility authentication bibliographic data bibliographic database blog copyright database e-learning e-research framework html information architecture infrastructure openid opera passwords portal provenance repositories research rss search technology software uri video virtual research environment web 2.0 youtube Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1304 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Using Blogs for Formative Assessment and Interactive Teaching http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/foggo <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/foggo#author1">Lisa Foggo</a> provides a case-study of using a blog for formative assessment. Its interactivity engaged participants and permitted measurement of student expectations and satisfaction with library sessions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This case study shows how students were taught the skills they need to find information relevant to their subject area. As groups of students are generally seen once only, measures to assess the effectiveness of teaching are needed, i.e. to determine the skills the students have acquired. Blogs were used as a tool for formative assessment and were used to measure student expectations before teaching, and their level of satisfaction with the session afterwards.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/foggo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 feature article lisa foggo bbc british library cilip harvard university northumbria university ukoln university of york archives bibliographic data blog database e-learning framework higher education information society licence privacy research rss search technology url visualisation vocabularies web 2.0 wiki wireless application profile Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1309 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk OpenID: Decentralised Single Sign-on for the Web http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/powell-recordon <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/powell-recordon#author1">Andy Powell</a> and <a href="/issue51/powell-recordon#author2">David Recordon</a> take a brief look at OpenID and ask what relevance it has to e-learning.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/powell-recordon" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 feature article andy powell david recordon becta eduserv jisc microsoft verisign ples wikipedia authentication blog browser e-learning firefox foaf framework hcard infrastructure microformats openid passwords php python research ruby shibboleth social networks standards technorati url wayf web 2.0 wiki wordpress zend framework zip Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1314 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk The JISC Annual Conference 2007 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/jisc-conf-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/jisc-conf-rpt#author1">Philip Pothen</a> and colleagues provide an overview of the proceedings of this Spring's JISC Annual Conference.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="Opening_Keynote_Address">Opening Keynote Address</h2> <p>The 2007 JISC conference began with a welcome from JISC Executive Secretary <strong>Dr Malcolm Read</strong> who thanked the more than 600 delegates for attending the conference, held for the fifth year running at the ICC in Birmingham.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/jisc-conf-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 event report philip pothen ahrc amazon bbc becta british library cetis dcc digital preservation coalition edina eduserv google hefce jisc jisc collections jisc infonet liverpool john moores university microsoft mimas mla nhs oxford brookes university rnib robert gordon university staffordshire university uk data archive ukerna ukoln university of greenwich university of oxford university of southampton university of wales university of wolverhampton wellcome trust e-framework gmsa jisc information environment memetic perseus accessibility aggregation archives browser cataloguing copyright crm curation data data management data set database digital curation digital library digital preservation digitisation dissemination e-business e-learning e-science ejournal eportfolio flickr foi foia framework further education higher education ict infrastructure intellectual property interoperability knowledge base mobile mobile phone open access open source openid personalisation portfolio preservation rae repositories research search technology second life sms soa social software software tagging video virtual research environment vle web 2.0 web browser web development web resources wireless application profile youtube Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1315 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk News and Events http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/newsline <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Ariadne presents a brief summary of news and events.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a name="headlines"></a><a name="events1"></a></p> <h3 id="Introduction_to_Federated_Searching_Technology_and_Developments">Introduction to Federated Searching Technology &amp;

It is probably human nature that we would mostly prefer to be handed a ready-made meal than a lesson in farming, but we all know deep down that only the latter will lead to long-term success. Seale sets about providing a very effective lesson in farming - not a finished meal.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/ball-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 review simon ball bbc jisc w3c accessibility cataloguing course design e-learning framework higher education instructional design multimedia research usability Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1319 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Digital Literacies for Learning http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/cliff-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/cliff-rvw#author1">Pete Cliff</a> reviews a work that challenges traditional notions of literacy and how suggests that new literacies need to be developed to empower both learners and teachers in the digital age.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>In the changing, and increasingly digital world, learners and teachers are more and more subject to information overload and the noise this generates. Teachers must cope with larger cohorts and more disparate communities. Increasingly, information communication technologies are being used to address these issues and it becomes clear that new skills are required to operate effectively in the learning environment.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/cliff-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 review pete cliff ukoln university of bath e-learning learning management system research software web 2.0 Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1321 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
