Research approach for questionnaire/survey

23 06 2010

After discussion with my colleagues I have decided to avoid the mass email with apologies for cross postings approach. I am going to very specifically target the questionnaire/survey to as many of my contacts as possible. I am aware this will take a lot longer from my end, but I hope that it will result in a higher response rate.

Visual presentation technology survey

16 06 2010

This questionnaire will help provide information to be shared with the visual arts community as part of this research project. The questionnaire should take approximately 7 minutes to complete depending on whether you answer 12 or all 15 questions.

The specific research area is image presentation software and how resources can be better adapted to existing pedagogic practice. I would like to hear from all those who use, support others use of, or would like to use, presentation technology in their current role, particularly to present or teach about images or the visual arts, including: academic staff, support staff, librarians, information managers, slide librarians, visual resource curators, museums and gallery staff, and IT staff.

Any data received will be treated as anonymous and held confidentially. Further details and a copy of the final report are available on request (see the end of the survey for details).

Good Practice Guide for Elluminate Live

8 06 2010

As a JISC online conference attendee I have been a participant in the Elluminate Live virtual environment. I have just noticed this really useful piece providing more information about Elluminate Live, including a recording made using the software.

What is striking about Elluminate Live and other virtual meeting spaces or classroom software is the similarity of their Graphical User Interface (GUI). I have also had demos of, or used: and Wimba Classroom.
