The Story of the Planet Platform

Posted by yishaym on March 31, 2009

True to the dogfood principle, we now have a case study on the development of the Planet platform. An amazing tale on international mystery and intrigue. Well, maybe not – but if you’re working in a UK HE institure and thinking of launching an ambitious web2.0 project, you might find our experience informative.

Or, if you have been involved in a similar project, we would be curious to know: does this resonate with your experiece?

Its all there (in brief): the original plan, what went smoothly, what went wrong, and where we are at the end of the day. Enjoy!

Sharing practice – a shared problem.

Posted by Janet Finlay on July 15, 2008

End of the first day of the JISC Innovation Forum and the issue of sharing practice has cropped up several times already. How do we move from having swathes of useful information hidden away at best in reports and project websites and at worst in the heads of experts to making it available to practitioners in a form and at a time that it will be useful to them? This is exactly the problem we are exploring in Planet so I was pleased to see that it is recognised as a significant issue well beyond the scope of the current project. Tomorrow Jim and I will be presenting the project in the Market Place (9-10am for those who are in Keele) – hopefully the start of a dialogue on how we can extend its reach and use the process to support the wider JISC community.
