Session 4: Sharing online content

Date & Time: 
online - 25 September (15.00 CET)

In September-October 2013 Web2LLP is organising an online social media course for managers of lifelong learning projects. This course will be delivered via videoconferencing over 5 modules of 1-hour sessions to participants located in different countries. This course will be delivered in 3 sub-groups in English, French and Italian.

Programme

25 participants from 15 different countries participated in the fourth session of Web2LLP's online pilot course, of which the topic centered around managing and sharing content in a social media context through different curation tools and IPR constraints. Alberto Nantiat (ENZO B, Belgium) introduced the concept of curation, highlighting tools such as Scoop.it, Diigo and paper.li, while Mathy Vanbuel (ATiT, Belgium) took the participants on a journey through several cases of copyright-infringement, to make them aware of intellectual property rights issues helping participants make sure that their project activities respect necessary constraints in respect to sharing content while still making sure to be as open as possible. Last but not least, Shona Whyte (University of Nice, France), shared her personal experience of using Scoop.it as a curation tool while she became involved in the iTILT project. She gave participants useful guidelines and suggestions of how to curate and share content through Scoop.it.
