Web 2.0 and the law

Butterfly at Llanarchaeron.
Matt recently attending a JISC Legal event about the legal implications of web 2.0 and he’s written a more detailed CLT blog post about this. The suggestion was that through regulation and education, those working in education would be made aware of the legal implications – such as copyright, data protection and privacy, before using these tools. I am certainly considering how we can incorporate some of this sort of education into our training programme for staff at LSE. I’ve also started working recently with Matt and Alex Hardman from Manchester, developing a course on what has been called ’21st Century skills’ for those in higher education or digital literacy. We’ve got a Wimba Live Classroom conference call tomorrow to brainstorm about this, which will be my first chance to use this tool!

Just as a little aside, thanks again to Ellyssa for her blog post about students preferring lecture capture. Some interesting findings from University of Wisconsin-Madison, which back up what LSE found during some focus groups we conducted earlier this year.
