Follow up information. Thank you for creating the blog. I will post the initial announcement below.The opening description:
Welcome to our research collective!
In the fall of 2006 we set out to develop a network of people from the Faculty of Humanities who are using or are interested in using CMC (Computer Mediated Communication). At the moment, we are about a dozen people representing six departments and the HCMC sharing experience and research on creating new learning environments and communities.
We use this blog for announcements and discussions. We also like to extend the invitation to new members to join us!

1. Next meeting: Wednesday, Feb 28th, 2007 at 6:30 p.m. at Martin's Pub/Place (3838 Cadboro Bay: in the little village down the hill) We have booked the upstairs room.
I would like to open a blog for the upcoming Humanities Project Showcase. I am treating the showcase like a project, and think that there will be sufficient posts to warrant its own stream. Announcements will originate from here, and I may welcome faculty to participate in discussion items. Most of the faculty involved are tech savvy already (to one extent or another), and they may actually use it. Also, Ali, Greg and Ehsan will be involved in the Showcase, and having them participate here will introduce them to the blogging tool, too.
I would like to propose a new blog on Moodle. Ricardo Draper, Erica Price-Edny, and I have been appointed by Mark Roman to explore the possibility of providing centralized Moodle services and support.
Right now it's not at the project stage, but we need a place to share information and discussion. I plan to post results of interviews on usage, costs for support, support models, and the like. Mark Roman says he will likely make it a formal project in the near future.
I know a number of us have an interest in Moodle. I'm recommending we use the blog as a shared space where we post our findings, and allow others to review and post as well. We could create categories based on user groups or types of information (Technical/Admin/Pedagogy, etc.)
Any thoughts on this?
I've just begun the customization work to add tracking of time worked to the system. This may result in instability, so keep copies of all posts you make today.
This blogging tool is new to us, and we're trying to figure out how to make it do all the things we require of a project and workflow management tool for our R & D lab. This blog will record what we did, how we did it, what went wrong, and how we fixed it.
