-- Awaiting update on shared space in HOL
-- The space will likely be used by students doing short video production for English courses this semester. Lauren's OL team has also expressed interest in having a space for collaborative data work, and Carolyn's team has used it for training.
-- Tech refresh? There is some question of who should do this. Hard to justify major spending on computer upgrades at current usage. Any interim steps? (New Windows 8 Tablets?)
-- Any other useful gear we should be looking at?
-- The Literature of Utopia pilots went extremely well, see:
-- A WordPress Sandbox - for LearnDash WP LMS, etc... -- Brian can move on this
-- Badge server for Mozilla open badges
Media Team, angle... (priorities, exploration of innovation technologies)
The Kumu Wiki has launched. Hopefully some existing staff time can be allocated to this, though progress on this has been slow.
A work-study position to support WordPress and MediaWiki?
Brian is working on: BCCampus "Toward Open Education" (TOE) initiative, and an associated https://www.bc.net working group on Collaborative Technologies for Open Education. As well, been tasked to set up a sub-committee for TRU's Instructional Development and Support Committee (IDSC) to Learning and Teaching Systems Advisory Committee (LTSAC) -- pending approval and feedback from IDSC, et al... Make-up and final terms of reference are still being determined.
Related to above, Brian hopes to set up a meeting/workshop with collaborators on KUMU Wiki and BCCampus TOE at TRU sometime in the next month or two.
