Dave has kindly offered to organise a trip to Media City if members of the Sig would like to visit. If you are interested in making a visit to Media City following the meeting please contact Dave Dowdle D.L.Dowdle@salford.ac.uk<mailto:D.L.Dowdle@salford.ac.uk>

Best wishes,

Very few have asked for a trip to Media City after the SIG meeting at Salford so one has not been arranged. When travelling on Wednesday you might consider the train as the station is so close to the venue.

Hello all

A quick note to let you know that the doodle poll deadline for the next ALTNWESIG event has been extended until 12pm today. Hope you can get involved! http://doodle.com/iy6s6tnebypevdpm

Hi

Following on from the discussion about MOOCs at Lancaster, I'd like to propose a possible item for the next meeting at Salford.

Badges:
Who is using them?
How are they being used?
External provider (Mozilla etc) or home made?
How do people react to them? Students, Academic Staff, Admin
Do they have a future?

In Humanities at Manchester we're aware of Badges, but not much more. I've collected a couple while taking a MOOC at Oxford Brookes but I've no idea what to do with them!
