What are people up too!

Don’t know if any of you have heard of the DUCKLING project from Leicester University. The project is all about how to provide materials and support for distance learning students. They have come up with some really good ideas though which could just as easily be applied to students in the university or for students on Earn as you Learn. Do have a look at the video on the JISC Design Studio page above, I’m sure you will find it very interesting.
Over the last few weeks I’ve been playing with a programme called Scoopit (http://www.scoop.it/). It is a really quick way of creating access to interesting web sites. A lecturer might use this for their students but it would also be a great way for students to support one another. Anything that has a url can be scooped and you can add your own text too. You can add comments and/or re-scoop a site from someone else. There are a number of other things you can do as a Scoopit community but I haven’t had time to explore those yet. Why don’t you have a look and let me know how you get on.
Have a good weekend and I’ll see you all next week 🙂
