I attended a scenario planning meeting for JORUM today at the HE Academy in York. I am still involved in JISC but no longer on
JIIE where I spent the last five years plotting the information environment for FE and HE in the UK. Today was interesting we now have in JORUM

a learning repository for all of UK HE and FE - the challenge is that we are now in year 5 of a 5 year plan and Web2 has firmly arrived. We need to change our thinking and models if the resource is to stay in step with learner behaviour . It will be interesting to see what comes out of today's discussions in York.

The challenge for organisations like JISC is in the lead time to procure and establish a service like JORUM versus the rate that technology changes and disrupts the process.

Also back on the blog - and playing with Mozilla
