Blogs, wikis, pods, vods and social bookmarking: The future for Blended Learning?

I'm giving a talk today (19th June) to the HEA Business, Management, Accounting and Finance Subject Network at the Glamorgan Business Centre.

The slides for the talk are here they are created in the spirit of academic sharing, so please feel free to use and repurpose them to your hearts content.

I also created a Podcast to be part of the presentation this can be found here

Any feedback or comment, please comment on this blog or e-mail

Hi Haydn,
I enjoyed your presentation yesterday. I'm still trying to get my head around how to use all this social software to best effect. Something definitely to be explored further, especially with the traditional VLE focus on content.

Having said that, simply using the VLE as a repository is a useful starting point for some people, but it doesn't build a community in the way that blogs do. I sometimes think of Moodle as a half-way house - it can be used for content, but its ethos and focus is on a constructivist approach to learning.

Hi All

The presentation was energetic and enjoyable. The constraints of VLE's can be quiet oppressive, at there main advantages seem to be associated with student tracking rather than delivering interactive/social learning. The next generation of intelligent VLE’s using user agent modelling promises more but who knows if they will deliver. The social software shown by Haydn can be used to great effect to foster learning communities and faciliate learning on demand.

Thanks again to Haydn for a stimualting presentation.

Regards Phil Glew

Thanks for the kind words Phil. As you see there are more messages here since then. In the spirit of cooperative learning, the more I read the more I'll share. Happy to have any links that you find feed back.
