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).

Strategic Decisions (slides)

At last week’s LIS Strategic decisions, we presented the results of our strategic planning efforts, which are a set of four strategic areas that we have chosen to focus on. The a .pdf of the presentation can be found at http://sites.middlebury.edu/lis/files/2009/10/LIS-Strategic-decisions.pdf , while a longer document that goes into greater detail about the process can be found at http://docs.google.com/View?id=dcst5th3_2chx2w2gq .

Please feel free to ask questions, make comments, and add to this by way of the comments on this blog.

Our next leg in this journey will be to set goals around these areas, which we will be doing starting immediately.
