1 Learning & Teaching with Wikis Introduction to Campus Pack Welcome to Campus Pack within Blackboard. Campus Pack is a tool integrated with Blackboard that enables staff and students to collaborate within a Blackboard module using wikis, blogs and podcasts. These new tools are available in all modules on Blackboard and as a tutor you can create and guide your students to actively participate and collaborate online within the module. This encapsulates the University s philosophy of technology enhanced learning, encouraging and enabling students to become active learners and content creators within the virtual learning environment using social software tools such as podcasts, wikis and blogs. What is a Wiki? A Wiki (the Hawaiian word for Quick!) is a website that can be edited by anyone who has access to it (through their Internet Browser and in this case in Blackboard). A Wiki can be created by an individual or shared among a group of individuals. There are many useful tools in Wikis, and many are similar to MS Office software tools; therefore, you do not need to learn new skills to use Wikis! Features which may be new to some users will be: tracking version history, version comparison, discussion pages and automatic page edit alerts. There are many Wikis on the Internet. The most popular Wiki is Wikipedia and many Wikis are built using free tools such as wetpaint or PBWorks. However, within Blackboard we have our own version of Wikis (teams LX) built within each module. Within a Wiki staff members can collaborate on : o Recording agreed and accurate minutes of meetings, setting agendas o Writing reports, developing academic research papers o Conducting brainstorming sessions o Building up and sharing resources (useful links), etc Students can work together (usually in small groups) on: o Inquiry-based learning activities, e.g. exploring and building a resource on a topic or theme o Writing group reports, e.g. on lab experiments or field trips o Developing portfolios with both group and individual contributions N:\Campus Pack How-tos\Final CP Guides/ SGW (2009)- 1 -

2 Wikis for use by both staff and students: o Developing glossaries o FAQs o Case studies o Collaborative brainstorming sessions How to use Wikis in Blackboard Take a look at the Campus Pack tutorial video on teams LX (tip: allow the video to fully load before viewing) Logging on to Blackboard Choose the Blackboard icon on Inform Or Open Internet Explorer and type: Students accessing these tools can log into Blackboard via Glamlife Enter your Username and Password N:\Campus Pack How-tos\Final CP Guides/ SGW (2009)- 2 -

13 Acknowledgements Special thanks to the team at the Learning and Teaching Development Unit (LTDU) at UWIC, Cardiff for granting permission to use elements of their guidance documentation for Campus Pack. Queries about this How-to guide and requests for advice and training on the use of Campus Pack tools in Blackboard should be directed to: Catherine Naamani Senior Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning CELT Tel: Copyright and wikis, blogs, podcasts and other user-generated content in Blackboard and online Content posted in wikis, blogs and podcasts might contain 3rd party copyright material, which may be illegal. For example, uploading, storing or archiving legal video files from YouTube on Blackboard, the University of Glamorgan's VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), for teaching and learning purposes is not itself illegal. However, if you are unsure of whether the video file on YouTube is legal or not, do not use it. To check the legal status of each video file on YouTube check its Terms and Conditions of Use (usually found at the bottom of each YouTube webpage) and Copyright Status. If you need any guidance please contact the Rights Officer. Third party copyright should of course be respected. For guidance see the updated 'How to Get Started with Blended Learning and Copyright' here, and the Copyright frequently asked questions here. What issues are there to consider if we record lectures and make them available online in Blackboard modules? Members of staff should check the Terms & Conditions of their Contract of Employment, but it s highly likely that since they are employed by the University, the University will own the copyright in the content of the lecture. However, the Lecturer will own the copyright in their actual performance of the lecture. Furthermore, if the University agrees to film lectures, and makes all the necessary arrangements via Media Services in the LRC, then the actual recording will most likely to belong to the University too. So, members of staff should give the University permission to record their lectures (implicit agreement by arranging the recordings is probably sufficient), but equally if staff wish to do anything else with the recordings (i.e. use other than for their Glamorgan students, or at a different institution) then the University s permission for this further use must be sought. Another thing to consider is the role of students in the recording. A lecturer with tens of students watching their performance, with no individual student identifiable in the recording is one thing, but if a seminar involving several students who are clearly identifiable is recorded, then an assignment of their performance rights from them must also be obtained. Notice and Take Down Policy Every effort has been made to ensure that nothing in the University of Glamorgan s Virtual Learning Environment GlamLearn ( Blackboard ) infringes UK law. If the University of Glamorgan is notified of a potential breach of copyright, or receives a complaint indicating a breach of copyright, the electronic material involved will be removed from Blackboard as quickly as possible pending further investigation. Where the grounds for notification or complaint are considered plausible, the electronic item will be withdrawn from Blackboard until further notice, so that efforts can be made to resolve the matter. If you are a rights owner and are concerned that material which you own has been reproduced on Blackboard without your permission, please contact us by at See the following link to Copyright and Performance Rights for further information: N:\Campus Pack How-tos\Final CP Guides/ SGW (2009)- 13 -
