The Social Web and Higher Education

July 12th, 2006 / 0 Comments

I had the pleasure of speaking at the 2006 CALI conference this summer. Though they claim to be concerned with ‘Computer Assisted Legal Instruction’, I think their real motive is to amass the world’s largest collection of XXL Hawaiian T-shirts.

My role within the panel was to define the social web and provide examples of how these social features are of benefit to law school websites. Browsing the slides should provide you with thrilling sensations of digital communism, particularly if accompanied by audio of the presentation (.mp3). I received several compliments from the audience on the packaging and presentation of material and was reasonably pleased with the closing discussion. Moreover, I managed to go through the entire presentation without dropping the —2.0 bomb.

An excellent summary is available here.

Hi, my name is Scott and I design websites. You can see some of them by visiting my portfolio. When I have the time (which is seldom these days) I like to blog about Christianity, especially theology/ethics. If you want to know more you can read my about page or follow me on Twitter.
