DMU Commons Talk

A couple of weeks ago we introduced a new discussion forum to the DMU Commons. It uses the Discourse Forum system, and is a space in which students and staff at DMU can talk about topics that are related to their learning activities, or anything that they are generally interested in. To use the system you need a DMU student or staff username. There are apps that you can load onto a mobile device for both Apple and Android, so it’s pretty accessible. At the moment I’m learning how the system works, and as it builds more discussions and users I’ll get a better sense of what will drive its development. As Howard Rheingold reminds us, developing a virtual community is a bit like hosting a party. So bring a virtual bottle, and we’ll provide the rest…

Doc Media Podcast Recording

Each Wednesday during November I’ll be recording a podcast with John Coster and guests as part of the Documentary Media Month events. If anyone is interested in taking part, or helping out with the podcast, or just hanging out and listening to the discussion, then we’ll be at the Documentary Media Centre, on the 1st Floor of 10 Bishop Street, Leicester LE1 6AF. It’s easy to find, opposite the fountain in the Town Hall Square.

East Midlands Community Media Network

I want to set up a Community Media Network for the East Midlands, that can be used to share information and advice about developing community media in the region. The aim of this project is to develop networking events, host regular podcasts discussions, list and share information about community media groups in the East Midlands, and promote ideas that support community development practices though community media.

I’ve set up a wiki page on the DMU Commons Wiki, and I will be adding content to the new CIVICRM database that we are introducing for the Community Media modules this year.

If anyone wants to help get this going, as an extra-curricula activity, or just because you are interested in the development of stronger voices in Leicester, then we will be meeting on Wednesday’s 5-7pm at the Doc Media Centre which is on Leicester’s Town Hall Square.

This is an open network, and we want to encourage lots of different people to help out and take part. If you want to find out more, then contact me at rwatson@dmu.ac.uk, or via Twitter @robwmedia.
