Thanks for checking out iCollab here on G+. Earlier this year we published an paper in Research in Learning Technology (link below) about the iCollab project. Although the wave of iCollab activity has ended (the CoP & hashtag were active from 2010-2015), each of us is carrying these practices forward in other ways, with other networks and hashtags. The essence is the same: global networks of learning communities in which learners & teachers can share, learn, and create knowledge together.

Please feel free to connect with myself or any other iCollab participants here or on Twitter: +Thom Cochrane +Bernie Goldbach +Helen Keegan +Ilona Buchem +Mar Camacho +Averill Gordon & +Sarah Howard.

Thank you!

Hi +Robin Migliaccio Ashford! I've just added you to the #icollab community, after seeing your request. We're planning events for 2014-15... can you let us know what you are up to? Would you like to connect with the learning communities already in #icollab... or are you thinking of setting up something similar, perhaps?

Would be happy to chat sometime... e.g. G+ hangout. Probably long overdue ;)

Quick summary of our #icollab  Hangout:
* Planning to aim for #icollab  research outputs for ALTC15
* Gather student feedback on next projects via a shared SurveyMonkey survey
* Plan for meet up at Ascilite 2016 Conference "down under"!
* Catherine, Thom & Averill working on #icollab  paper for special issue of RLT due Friday
* Next planning Hangout 10th or 11th November

Hi all -- what a great week for #icollab , collaboration and networking last week at the #altc conference at the University of Warwick. It was a joy to meet +Thom Cochrane -- at last! It's always wonderful to meet people IRL whom you've worked with and connected with online, but after all those early/late hangouts, meeting Thom was like meeting family :)

Thom gave  an engaging presentation of the joint paper on BYOD / #moco360 ( and I cited our work in #icollab in my keynote ( There was lots of buzz about this work, so hopefully some new connections as well :)

Over the coming weeks, Thom and I are going to work on finishing our paper for the ILTA journal (Irish), based on our presentation for #EdTech14 ( and then we thought we'd try to schedule a group #icollab + hangout soon, to talk about planning something for ALT-C 2015... in Manchester!

Anyway, many thanks for all your tweets and good wishes last week, it was lovely to feel the strength of our community, both in Coventry and virtually. Talk soon :)

Hi all... long time no see! I am heading down to Tipperary today to the annual ICT in Education conference and will see both Bernie (who works at LIT) and Helen (who is keynoting at the conference) -- a mini #icollab reunion :)

In 3 weeks, I'll be sharing some of what we have been doing with iCollab at the EdTech 2014 conference in Dublin Thom and I put together the attached abstract - Nurturing Global Collaboration - but would love your ideas, suggestions, and especially any evidence or reflections from students who have engaged with #icollab over the past year.

Thom, perhaps you would share the link to the series of images you put together? I am putting ideas together for the presentation and will share a draft for your feedback when that is done. In the meantime, please add any ideas or suggestions right into the Google doc here. Many thanks, all.
