This Prezi is from Royal Holloway, University of London. A great resource for research students and undergrads alike. I’m sure you will like it and the funny video near the end

The CC organisation gets involved in all sorts of things like the Open Data Hackathon earlier in February and the EasyBib Webinar on Thursday 21st.

And now for something completely different If any of you are interested in Web Analytics, for example finding out more about your own footprint in Twitter or you want to do some research about networking/social media, you might like to have a look at some of these programmes. Some of them are aimed at commercial sites but that is no reason why they cannot prove useful to people in HE. Some are free – check them out:
- Open Courses on Web Analytics from University College Falmouth
- TwitSprout will collect information and create diagrams from Twitter and Facebook
- Netlytic will find and automatically analysis and discovery social networks from electronic communication such as emails, forums, blogs and chats.
- followerwonk will find out all about your own Twitter account
There are lots more but I think the above will give you some insight into the sort of thing that can be done
