Many institutions have an interest in exploiting Web 2.0 technologies, such as Blogs, Wikis, social networking services, etc. However there are also legitimate concerns that the term "Web 2.0" term may be over-hyped and that there may be risks associated in using such technologies.

In his talk Brian will summarise what is meant by the term Web 2.0 and give examples of how it can be used in the higher educational sector and will outline a risk management approach to exploiting Web 2.0 technologies.

The presentation will be followed by a group discussion in which participants will discuss areas in which Web 2.0 can be of particular benefit to their institution and approaches to the deployment of Web 2.0.


The meeting took place in Room 1, Collins Building, University of Glasgow, Richmond Street, Glasgow, G1 1XQ (coordinates 55.861441;-4.244499). For the location of the meeting please see Google maps.
