There will shortly be a discussion area for Multimedia BSc students within CU Online. It intended for general discussion relating to the course.
In addition, I am now teaching a 2nd year module on Copyright and Intellectual Property, which will be supported through this blog.
To avoid any confusion, I have re-named this blog from ‘Course blog Multimedia year 1’ to ‘Multimedia module blog’.
The new posts will focus on copyright and IP issues, paying particular attention to mobile devices. There will be occasional items on research methods and user interface design. My research and teaching interest in the application of Web 2.0 technology to education and learning will also be reflected.
You are welcome to read the RSS feed, read the blog when relevant to your interests and comment when you have something to contribute to the discussion.
Thanks for your interest.
This blog is an example of the type of blog students will produce using WordPress hosting. You can have as many posts as you like. These work best as short pieces. You can also create a small number of pages. Pages suit a longer piece such as an essay, or static content. Depending on your choice of theme, tabs linking to pages will usually be arranged at the top, sometimes at the side.
I will use this example blog to demonstrate how to upload files and edit your blog. You are free to experiment with different themes and plug-ins. Generally, changing the theme re-arranges all the elements without mishap. At least as far as loss of text is concerned. Usability can suffer, but unlike a traditional website, you can change your mind about the design without the overhead of re-design and re-coding. Continue reading About the blog
This is the course blog for PPA The use and abuse of research. Documents and links will be posted here throughout the course.
Students will be setting up their own blogs and posting short pieces of writing throughout the course.
Of course, they will have much more advanced blogs than this.
Update: blog continues through User Interface Design module. See FAQ.
