  • We may not have been the first to host blogs and wikis as campus services, but we're in the mix... And we have the scars to prove it.

EduPunk?

  • Bavatuesdays, The Glass Bees - "Corporations are selling us back our ideas, innovations, and visions for an exorbitant price. I want them all back, and I want them now!"

It generated an ungodly number of blog posts, and garnered a surprising amount of attention outside the world of education.

Blogs

  • The Library is of course doing great things...


Sites

We're going full-blown CMS baby!

You can setup your UBC site in minutes. We support UBC's common look and feel as a theme. Partnering with Public Affairs and IT on delivering a UBC-wide CMS.

Some of our sites:

http://leap.ubc.ca, http://celc.sites.olt.ubc.ca/, http://chcm.ubc.ca/, http://earlylearning.ubc.ca/, http://act.elearning.ubc.ca/, http://strategicplan.ubc.ca/, http://aboriginal.sites.olt.ubc.ca/ (private, in development), http://thischangedmypractice.com/

WP setup

Mostly developed by wider WordPress community, but at least some bits of custom code

  • CWL authentication

And a fairly wide array of plugins (our admin is very good at monitoring their effects on system performance)

Wiki

  • CWL authentication
  • private, standalone sites available HLWiki
  • Extensions include WikiBooks
  • Namespaces for courses, documentation, etc... Along with categories. Feedback?
  • "transclusion" - or chunking page content into tiny wiki bits (don't call them objects, please) example

Enterprising Edupunk

Let's count the Edupunk vs Enterprise dilemmas that Novak and Brian argue about:

  • Setup, maintenance - easy to do, not so easy to do well... economies of scale need to be thought through
  • Integration (we love UBC's central IT, we love VM, we love CWL)
  • What do the pieces do? (MW as resource management vs WP as presentation tool,...)
  • Complexity and structure vs being light-weight and user-friendly
  • stats and reporting: who is using it? for what? Critical for making the case for the importance of service, determining trends.

The future

  • Integration with BuddyPress to offer more personalization, interaction on multiple levels (friends, forums, blogs, groups) example at http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/
