Table 2:

POST IT NOTES

- Why collaborate?
1. make a better…
2. we can both all use it ( don’t need to reinvent)
- How does one get asked to the dance( get asked to collaborate)
- How does one ask busy people to participate
- Comfortable to share rough or draft, but takes time to polish to publish level
- LTC >> treasure box
- Similar values and goals
- Resources – categories, tags, searchable?
- Move tag cloud to homepage or get rid of the tag cloud?
- More detailed description about the tag
- Collaboratory or repository?
- Infrastructure to collaborate or meet there and work elsewhere
- Complicated playground >> keep treasure on place for 1 year.
- Need concise summaries, descriptions
link leads to another link >> get big
- Twitter version
- Pont put all resources at once

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Issues:
- Some people are waiting to get asked, Other hesitate to ask someone who is busy
- LTC >>treasure hunt

- Searching function is not working well yet: because we have to know it is existed and what it is called exactly
- Tag cloud? Get rid? Move to the homepage?
- BCcampus as repository or meet and collaborate somewhere else
- Things seems transitory >> change the content: should be stable for a year
- Put it into Categories
- Differentiate between news and resources
- Follow someone posts


Table 3:

POST IT NOTES

- Menu is not logical: ISW should be under faculty development; random
- Why resources is not the SOL*R, about at top
- Heading of the widgets need to be linked (ISW)
- Site to complex, still no sense of what scope does,, overwhelming (See ISW networking site)
- Needs User interface (focus it down,, cannot be everything to everybody) specifics but general
- More clear instructions to navigate faculty or students
- Make login easier/ more accessible
- What is the difference of SCoPE, SOL*R, Series, etc, isw
- Usability, availability, improve calendar, clickable then open description tag
- Digital devices and access
- weak navigation to LTC from BCcampus

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Navigation and look and feel
Content is getting there (robust)
Who is the site for? Who is learning together?
