m-ICTE2009 Lisbon - SAPO Campus paper
Another paper related to SAPO Campus that will be presented at m-ICTE2009 in Lisbon (22-24 April).

SAPO Campus: a social media platform for Higher Education
C. Santos, L. Pedro

Abstract
Web 2.0 services educational use is an important pedagogical asset with potential to induce significant transformations in teaching methodologies applied by Higher Educations Institutions (HEIs). Recent research has demonstrated that the educational use of these tools has the potential to promote an effective development of communication, sharing and collaboration skills by learning communities’ members, contributing to more relevant learning experiences.

It is intended with the project SAPO Campus to develop, launch and assess an integrated Web 2.0 services platform based in SAPO core technologies that may promote the aforementioned skills in Portuguese HEIs students in order to ease and to support these services use in Higher Education contexts.

SAPO campus platform offers a set of services and tools that, based in our experience, can represent a significant improvement in what the educational and focused use of these tools in HEI is concerned. In this paper we will present and discuss key-concepts underlying the SAPO Campus platform, the achieved solution regarding the architectural structure and the services being developed, and finally we will provide a short description for each aggregation service with a focus in its expected impact in educational contexts.

Keywords: Web2.0; Learning; PLE; Higher Education

SAPO Campus - integrated platform of Web 2.0 services for education
Next 14th of May I will be at Challenges International Conference organized by U. Minho. I was invited to participate on a panel about "Emerging Environments" and present a paper related to SAPO Campus project.

Here is the abstract:

The use of the Social Web or Web 2.0 in education context has been revealing as a practice with the strength of inducing significant transformations at Higher Education institutions, as far as teaching and learning methodologies are concerned. Recent research demonstrated that the use of Web 2.0 tools in learning contexts successfully improves communication skills, as well as those of sharing and collaborating amongst community members, which ultimately results on relevant learning experiences for them.

SAPO Campus project consists in the implementation, distribution and assessment of a Web 2.0 services integrated platform, with the goals of disseminating and facilitating the usage of these services in a higher education setting.

This document presents SAPO Campus architecture and the integrated platform main services.

Keywords: Web2.0, education, PLE, platform, aggregation.

See you there! :)

Learn to love Comic Sans!



From this day on we decided to join the "Learn to love Comic Sans" movement! It's a font with so much potential, so often mistreated, and this movement aims to give it the place it deserves, a place in our hearts, browsers and logos.

If you share this love with us, please feel free to leave a comment showing your support!

P.S: visit the blog to view the effects of our full embrace of Comic Sans!

Disclaimer: So yeah, this was our April Fools joke. Here is a screenshot of how the blog looked just in case you missed it:
