To embed an immersive pattern of social bookmarking which the majority of students will continue beyond the assessment period.
Students will receive an introduction to social bookmarking via the VLE incorporating information about and links to a range of bookmarking sites.
1. Students will be required to open an account on del.icio.us in their UoL username and to post at least three (two?) items related to their course per week. In week 10 we will assess whether they have completed the task and award marks or otherwise via the VLE gradebook. (Students will be advised that that can have multiple del.icio.us accounts if they wish for professional and social use).
2. Students will be advised to tag bookmarks with the relevant UoL module codes (BS1005, MB1004, etc) so that they can identify each other. They will also be required to demonstrate (how?) that they have added at least n members of the course to their del.icio.us network. (n=10? Use del.icio.us RSS feeds? Incorporate search functions and resource discovery?)
