I was a research fellow working on the university's SocialLearn project, developing a social media platform that is tuned for learning. You can visit my blog on analytics for teaching and learning http://diving-4-pearls.blogspot.com/

The SocialLearn team is working to align current thinking on good pedagogy with the use of Web 2.0 technologies. We aim to support and encourage users to clarify their intention, ground their learning and engage in focused conversations.
