Welcome to PBwiki 2.0!


Project title: Blogs and Moodle Forum as Tools for Learning and Communication



This is a repository of the Research Project on Blogs and Moodle Forum as tools for Learning and Communication.


Our research team consists of


Jenny Mackness, Sui Fai John Mak, Roy Williams and Matthias Melcher (who left the team in early April 09 for personal reasons).


We would like to acknowledge Matthias for his great contribution throughout the planning stage of this research project.


Why are we opening this wiki to you now?


At the start of the research project in Feb 2009, we have considered opening this wiki to any CCK08 ex-learners/participants.  After some discussion amongst us, we realised the challenges in communication and collaborations in the initial stage of team formation.  We also realised that we need to maintain our integrity and comply with research ethics throughout the research project.  We have therefore decided to keep this wiki private until we have conducted our survey.  This will ensure that our research could be conducted in a professional and ethical manner, and that the research questions are only disclosed to people who are involved in the CCK08 course.  This could further minimise biasing and errors in the research.


As we have finished the first stage of our survey (which will be closed on 30 April 09), we have decided to open up this wiki to any CCK08 participants or interested members of http://connectivismeducationlearning.ning.com for viewing and comments. 




(1) You have been registered with this wiki and are granted the status of a reader.  You can view all files and pages contained in this wiki.  You will not be able to edit the pages but can add comments on the wiki.   You are welcomed to contact us by leaving comments.  Please note that SPAMS will be deleted.


(2) We have removed certain documents - Interview Trends, Linked Hypothesis, Further Survey Tasks and details of CCK08 participants from this wiki.  Part of the reasons were to maintain confidentiality of the details of our fellow CCK08 learners. 


(3) Everything we have written on this wiki has been written in good faith as part of our research. 


(4) We have continued our research on this project in another private wiki mainly because of the need to maintain confidentiality of the data we have collected, and to focus on the analysis of data with minimum bias.  Please note that we would be sharing our findings with the community when we have completed our further survey and analysis of the findings.  This will take some time and we would keep you informed on the progress of our analysis and the writing of reports.


(5) As we haven't published any part of the research yet, please do not use any part of the research work - documents, files, comments as contained in this wiki without our authorization.  You are reminded not to copy any of our research work for proposal, publication, submission of any assessment or project work, or part of a thesis or dissertation, as this would be classified as plagiarism by your institutions. 


We have adopted the Creative Common Licence on all folders, files and documents on this wiki.  Please refer to the Creative Common Licence Page for details.   


(6) We trust that you would comply with the above request.


Thank you very much for your cooperation.  We hope you would enjoy reading our research wiki.  You are welcomed to share your learning with us.
