JISC Netskills this month made public a preview of several web 2.0 animations created as part of a new Web2practice project, recently announced at the JISC Conference 2009. The project aims to provide educators and professionals with online guides and resources to enable them to learn more about the benefits of web 2.0 technologies for their work practices. Not only will professionals be able to use the resources provided to enhance their own understanding of web 2.0 tools, but – true to the spirit of web 2.0 – they will be able to share and remix content for purposes such as staff development and creating their own training and teaching aids.
Currently the project has animated videos available for topics such as social media, microblogging, podcasting and RSS, with more to be released in the coming months. The videos will eventually be accompanied by editable guides and other resources free to be downloaded and adapted under a creative commons licence.
