CAGD: in-house bespoke course management and e-portfolio tool

"The CAGD website was started in 2004, as a repository for research material from students on the BA Hons Contemporary Art Practices course (then BA Hons Contemporary Creative Practices), at Leeds Metropolitan University. It became apparently quite quickly though, that the tools that we'd developed would be useful for a lot more than simply collating material, and as more courses were included into the system it has grown to become a fully–functioning online e–portfolio, course management, social network, reflective journal and collaborative space, with (to date) more than 350,000 pieces of work and research and 1,000 active daily users."

(Graham Hibbert, 19 January 2012)

Simple Guide to Interest based Networks

"As Facebook and Twitter are reaching a saturation point, a new form of social network has begun to capture the people's attention recently. Interest based networks connect you with people whom you share interests/hobbies with. Though interest based networks are not completely new–forums and communities on specific topics have existed for a while–they are building a critical mass just now.

Pinterest, Instagram, Spotfiy, Goodreads, Quora and other interest based networks have grown significantly during the past 18 months. Each of these has built up a few million strong active userbase and provides a more fine grained marketing strategy for businesses. Small businesses and marketers must pay attention to these networks and utilize them in their marketing strategy."

Primal: What is Interest Networking?

"Interest networking is often seen as an extension of social networking. Rene Reinsberg (MIT) describes the Interest Graph as 'an online representation of individuals' interests, with people and interests being the nodes of the graph.'

Part of the confusion here is that social networks are often leveraged to construct interest networks, but the end shouldn't be confused with the means. By definition, a social network organizes information about people and their activities. An interest network organizes information around a set of interests, which may be yours and yours alone. Interest networks do not need social networking."

Learning Communities: new students sharing common experiences

"In their most basic form, learning communities employ a kind of co–registration or block scheduling that enables students to take courses together. The same students register for two or more courses, forming a sort of study team. In a few cases this may mean sharing the entire first–semester curriculum together so that all new students in that learning community are studying the same material. Sometimes it will link all freshmen by tying two courses together for all – most typically a course in writing with a course in selected literature, or biographies, or current social problems. In the larger universities such as the University of Oregon and the University of Washington, students in a learning community attend lectures with 200–300 other students but stay together for a smaller discussion section (Freshman Interest Group) led by a graduate student or upper division student. In a very different setting, Seattle Central Community College students in the Coordinated Studies Program take all their courses together in one block of time so that the community meets two or three times a week for four to six hours at a time."

Pinterest is a new online platform for sharing personal interests

"Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes."
