Curricular Technologies: Ideas and Suggestions

In an effort to tap into the collective wisdom of the Middlebury community, the Curricular Technology team has set up a Google Moderator “series” for Curricular Technology Ideas/Suggestions.  Check it out and add your ideas or vote on existing ideas.

For those of you who can’t keep up with all the tools and services Google has out there, Moderator is a site where you can aggregate input from a large number of people, similar to UserVoice, a site LIS has used to brainstorm on a number of topics.

I first discovered Moderator in a Google Buzz post about How to Fix Google Buzz, set up by a former Google employee (see: Ex-Googler Creates Voting Site: “How to Fix Google Buzz”, Read Write Web, 2/17/2010).

    This is a really cool tool Alex, thanks for sharing. The one thing I don’t like is that only the moderator can comment on items. This would be such a more powerful tool if anyone could add comments to votes and have a real discussion around the items. Fortunately, they’re collecting feature requests using their own tool, so if you think it’s a good idea to allow anyone to comment on items, you can vote for that feature here:

    I suppose you could vote against it too if you feel differently!

    I didn’t realize that only moderators could post comments/responses (since I had always been logged in when I added the initial ideas/suggestions). Perhaps UserVoice is a better platform for this sort of activity…
