There were lots of interesting tips about Voice emails (not to be confused with those dreadful phone messages). Very useful for when you want to provide feedback to students or if you want to explain something which is rather complex and – which is possibly more important – won’t bung up your mail box! I’m trying Waxmail – give it a go and let me know how you get on.
For those of you who have problems remembering the citation for that really useful picture try TinEye Reverse Image Search. We all need help avoiding the pit falls of the UK’s archaic copyright laws, TinEye is one of the most useful I’ve seen. Thanks to Carol Beattie for passing on the url 🙂
There are problems with copyright, mainly because it is an archaic system trying to maintain its reason for existing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating a world without some way of controlling an author’s or producer’s rights to ownership over their own work. We all publish in different ways now that digital media make it possible to do so. The Laws of copyright all need to be re-examined, simplified, reduced and made more flexible in order to make them functional in today’s world.
There really was a lot at this meeting so I might come back to it at sometime.
