Ideas for later trials

July 24, 2006

The open content system is potentially of use to eveyone. However as Maurice Sloman said in a recent seminar it is hard to design only for emergent use, he would rather try to meet the needs of some user group, and then let other uses emerge. This means we should  pick some targets we expect to be included and set out to study them. Candidates include:

  • Transistion from school to university

  • Remote communities – the commonwealth of learning has sugested the virtual university of the small states of the commonwealth

  • Enthusiast communities – e.g. Birdwatchers, sports fans, health, etc.

  • Retired people

  • Education drop outs

  • Partner universities eg in Brazil

There are many more.
