Evaluating cybergogy: Early adopters of wikis and student engagement Collins L.

ASCILITE 2010 - The Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education English 2010 This poster presentation will outline the background and current findings of an action research project which investigates the use of wikis in a Higher Education setting. The objectives of the project are to improve student engagement by providing them with well-researched and evaluated wiki-based assessment tasks. The Cybergogy instructional design model (Wang and Kang, 2006) which incorporates social, emotive and cognitive factors is used to iteratively work with three academics across business, science and humanities faculties, on six iterations of wiki-based tasks. 0 0
The work of sustaining order in Wikipedia: the banning of a vandal R. Stuart Geiger
David Ribes
English 2010 In this paper, we examine the social roles of software tools in the English-language Wikipedia, specifically focusing on autonomous editing programs and assisted editing tools. This qualitative research builds on recent research in which we quantitatively demonstrate the growing prevalence of such software in recent years. Using trace ethnography, we show how these often-unofficial technologies have fundamentally transformed the nature of editing and administration in Wikipedia. Specifically, we analyze "vandal fighting" as an epistemic process of distributed cognition, highlighting the role of non-human actors in enabling a decentralized activity of collective intelligence. In all, this case shows that software programs are used for more than enforcing policies and standards. These tools enable coordinated yet decentralized action, independent of the specific norms currently in force. 0 5

Educating educators in the purposeful use of web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning Doherty I.
Cooper P.
ASCILITE 2009 - The Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education 2009 Our paper reports on the provision and evaluation of continuing professional development workshops to teach educators how to use Web 2.0 applications and services constructively in their teaching. We describe the design research approach that we took to developing the workshops and we present the research results that led us to re-design the workshop format to the point where we are now delivering semi-structured, project-based workshops. Our paper concludes by discussing whether the project-based approach to teaching the workshops will result in higher levels of implementation by participants. We also consider whether introducing the university promotion process into the workshops will increase the incentive for participants to put what they have learned into practice. Copyright 0 0
Collaborative spaces and user-generated content in a lifelong learning program Koracak B.V. MCCSIS'08 - IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems; Proceedings of e-Learning 2008 English 2008 Within the CARNet E-learning Academy - a mixed-mode educational program on e-learning consisting of three specialised certificates - a set of resources has been developed in a wiki, in addition to the regular LMS learning environment. The initial plan was to develop a collaborative space in which the Academy participants could explore various e-learning tools and build, use, develop and expand this common testing laboratory. However, over four offerings of the programs the resources proved to be underused. This paper will focus on the resources, tools and activities within the E-learning Toolkit, analyse the results of their use and suggest conclusions and new developments that should be undertaken. 0 0
Tagpedia: A semantic reference to describe and search for Web resources Francesco Ronzano

CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2008 Nowadays the Web represents a growing collection of an enormous amount of contents where the need for better ways to find and organize the available data is becoming a fundamental issue, in order to deal with information overload. Keyword based Web searches are actually the preferred mean to seek for contents related to a specific topic. Search engines and collaborative tagging systems make possible the search for information thanks to the association of descriptive keywords to Web resources. All of them show problems of inconsistency and consequent reduction of recall and precision of searches, due to polysemy, synonymy and in general all the different lexical forms that can be used to refer to a particular meaning. A possible way to face or at least reduce these problems is represented by the introduction of semantics to characterize the contents of Web resources: each resource is described by one or more concepts instead of simple and often ambiguous keywords. To support these task the availability of a global semantic resource of reference is fundamental. On the basis of our past experience with the semantic tagging of Web resources and the SemKey Project, we are developing Tagpedia, a general-domain "encyclopedia" of tags, semantically structured for generating semantic descriptions of contents over the Web, created by mining Wikipedia. In this paper, starting from an analysis of the weak points of non-semantic keyword based Web searches, we introduce our idea of semantic characterization of Web resources describing the structure and organization of Tagpedia. We introduce our first realization of Tagpedia, suggesting all the possible improvements that can be carried out in order to exploit its full potential. 0 0
Medical Librarian 2.0 Connor E. Medical Reference Services Quarterly English 2007 Web 2.0 refers to an emerging social environment that uses various tools to create, aggregate, and share dynamic content in ways that are more creative and interactive than transactions previously conducted on the Internet. The extension of this social environment to libraries, sometimes called Library 2.0, has profound implications for how librarians will work, collaborate, and deliver content. Medical librarians can connect with present and future generations of users by learning more about the social dynamics of Web 2.0's vast ecosystem, and incorporating some of its interactive tools and technologies (tagging, peer production, and syndication) into routine library practice. © 2007 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
