RunCoCo - Beyond Collections: Crowdsourcing for public engagement
A free one-day conference held at OUCS, University of Oxford on 26th May 2011. It was hosted by the RunCoco project and sponsored by JISC. The conference will be of interest to learning technologists, librarians, museums, community groups, archivists and researchers. Through 'crowdsourced' community collections the general public or members of a particular group are invited to contribute to a project by uploading their own content or adding information to existing resources. It was an opportunity to reflect upon the range of models of crowdsourcing and community engagement projects in higher education.
Chris Morgan 'Mog' (University of Glamorgan, GEECS) presents on the Communities 2.0 digital inclusion project and the collection of digital stories that community members make.
