“Today in #IUADigEd and @Cuteproject_EU activities, I ran a podcasting workshop with an engaged group of staff. We had really insightful discussions around podcasting in general, uses in education, and we got stuck right in and recorded and processed audio in Audacity.”

“After @MaynoothUni last week, wrapped up another meeting with @UL @UL_StudentLife on the student perspective to digital teaching & learning via #IUADigEd. More funding and lower fees aside, we also need digitally competent academics to make learning more efficient and accessible.”
Eyes peeled for the full schedule 👀

The Social Media Alternatives Project (S-MAP) is comprised of two parts. First, there is a blog exploring developments in alternative social media. That is, sites that are built due to criticisms of mainstream social media sites such as Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. Notable examples of these sites include Diaspora, Quitter, and Lorea. The blog will discuss these sites and detail research on them.
Second, the S-MAP will house an archive of screenshots and data about alternative social media. This is meant to be a resource for scholars who are studying these alternatives, as well as for those who want to build their own alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
