Landing : Athabascau University

Finding Baby Bear's Bed: a tale of two spaces

Slides for my talk at ElggCamp, SF 2012.

Talks about some lessons learned from experiences at the University of Brighton's social network, community@brighton, and how that helped to shape the design philosophy behind the Landing at Athabasca University. Some discussion of social forms (sets, nets and groups) and the design of soft technologies using hard pieces, in order to try and reach the Goldilocks spot: not too hard, not too soft.


  • Hi Jon - looks like a great presentation! Like the emphasis on critical passion, not only mass. 

    How was ElggCamp?

  • Excellent event - plenty of great ideas and developments in the fast-growing Elgg community. Not just Elgg ideas - here's just one example of something we might want to look at at AU and any other place where user-controlled video needing no special equipment would be useful (conferences etc):
