Examples from the University of Saskatchewan
A blog is an on-line journal similar to a newsletter that people can read and comment on. Articles are usually 1-2 pages and can be search by date or keywords. Blog Carnivals ask people to submit articles to a monthly digest. The editor chooses the best ones for publication.
Medical Education Blog
Active Learning Blog Carnival
Every site you bookmark can be accessed by students or readers through a system of keywords. They can be added to a blog as a tag-cloud, so people can look up articles about your topic.
Active Learning Bookmarks on Del.icio.us
Tag-cloud added to a Blog Carnival
A wiki is an interactive document that several people contribute to. It is always changing and evolving as new material is added over time.
wePapers.com - An academic papers sharing and managing tool
Post Workshop Resource
Post Conference Resource
Committee Wiki -very useful to store information, inform members about project progress and create documents, it also teaches people to use wikis.
Elluminate is an interactive, synchronous system that works well in low bandwidths. It has two-way voice and video, PowerPoint capabilities, interactive whiteboards for participants and voting capabilities. We do monthly sessions with Elluminate across the province but it is too difficult to demonstrate in the time allowed. If you would like to participate in a session, please email me.
Elluminate offers free three person rooms to try out the tool.
NING provides social networking sites that you create, for example:
Women in Health Sciences
Medical Education Evolution (not created by the U.of S. but worth knowing about.)
Pod-casting involves posting audio files of presentations on-line.
Active Learning Carnival receives about 500 readers/month from every country except Russia and 70 submissions. In 8 months there have been over 3,000 separate users. Three of our Faculty have created their own blogs.
Medical Education is too new to judge.
Post Workshop wiki has received over 3000 hits in two years.
Our Elluminate sessions are held monthly and are restricted to 15 people. We fill these sessions.
Medical Education receives about 50 readers/month
The cost of creating the pod-casts was too high for the low readership.
I attracted only three participants to Women in Health Sciences group.
