I first came across My Knowledgemap when working on a Becta e-portfolio project. I’ve always been impressed with how very cooperative all of the e-portfolio providers are with each other. They model behaviour sadly not shared in some other areas of the commercial ILT world. MyKnowledgeMap were part of the team that built MyShowcase.
In the Have a Go session “Take control of your working life” David Sowden of Hull University will provide access to the MyShowcase toolset. MyShowcase is an open source Java VLE plugin which offers personalised evidence gathering for e-portfolios. Initially developed as part of a JISC project for the University of Hull, it allows users to aggregate, map and showcase content from a range of online sources, including social network spaces.
I couldn’t work out from the site when the code will be ready for release, so am looking forward to discussing that in the Have a Go forum.
The Conference runs from the 23rd – 26th November 2010, and the pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area.
See you there!
Book online – early registration advisable for full participation in the pre-conference week
