Today I ran a copyright workshop at the RSC SW VLE Forum in Taunton.
An interactive version of the workshop can be found online at the JISC Collections website.

I am currently at the RSC SW VLE Forum.
This is a really nice event, in which VLE developers and managers from across the South West get together, not just for chatting but to listen to presentations and now and again workshop activities.
Even though Gloucestershire College is advanced in terms of embedding their VLE into teaching and learning, it is always useful to go because I have found out things that I didn’t know, always learning something new.
I am attending an RSC SW Event at City of Bristol College, e-Learning Gathering Momentum. Interesting for me as I am back at City of Bristol college where I was a Business lecturer for many years. Meeting old colleagues has been nice.
At the moment Angela Harvey from the RSC SW is introducing the door, but is also mentioning the CAMEL approach.
Should be an interesting and informative day.
Today I was at the JISC Regional Support Centre (RSC) South West annual conference in Bridgwater. I missed the morning as I was in a meeting in Cheltenham, but did manage to get there in time for lunch!
I had missed some great sessions in the morning (according to the attendees I spoke to) but did manage to see the exhibitors in the exhibition whilst eating my lunch.
Met with David Sugden and had a chat about Web 2.0 and banning amongst other things and also Jaiku.
I meant to take some photographs and post them, but forgot once I was inside talking and listening.
Overall a good event and well worth making the effort to attend.
