Creative Hive on cloud 9 at Online Educa Berlin : Feb 17, 2012
Huw Morris, Chancellor and Executive Dean of the College of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Salford recently gave a keynote presentation at The Online Educa conference in Berlin entitled, 'The MLE, Web 2.0, Cloud 9 and Fantasy palaces'. Huw's excellent presentation gives us an insight and overview into the world of digital learning historically and going forward, covering managed learning environments, MediaCityUK and also the impact of web 2.0, Second Life and towards the end of the presentation, some of Salford University's projects including Creative Hive.
This presentation is great coverage for Creative Hive and demonstrates the potential of its core philosophy to bridge gaps between closed managed environments and free web2.0 services, but also it's mandate to allow cross departmental and pan University collaboration between students and professionals working in the industry.The presentation can be viewed on the Online Educa website or below.
