I've been motivated to get this started by a friend of mine, Ed Berger
, at the University of Virginia who started his own, HigherEd 2.0
, some time ago and finds it to be an effective way of communicating with his students (or so he says...thanks Ed). Ed has also done a number of other interesting things with Web2.0 technology.
The goal of this is to find ways to interact with not only me but each other as well. I guess we'll see how it goes, but I'm very excited that we can make this work. Ideally, this site will be sort of a central meeting point outside of class...and eventually it could
take on a life of its own.
You can ask questions of me and each other about just about anything...vibes-related
This site is run by the TikiWiki
software. I am very new to this and I'm not quite sure exactly what I've gotten myself into. However, this seems like it has just about everything: blogs, a wiki, galleries, articles, and several other things that I have not enabled. Very powerful stuff. I really have no idea how we will use all of this, but then again, that's the point.
So here it is...and it should become whatever you want it to be...
