|VENUS Summer School - WEB2.0 3-7 September 2007|
WEB2.0 Summer School
The University of West Hungary Faculty of Geoinformatics organized The VENUS Summer School, a five days seminar series in September 2007 on Social Software and its uses in Business and Higher Education. The Summer School was organized simultaneously in six different European countries. The Summer School was part of a seminar session of Venus Program (http://www.venus-seminars.net/).
The main goal of the Summer School was to show with the help of existing examples the usage of the WEB 2.0 technologies and softwares in education and business. Most of our participants here in Hungary were working in the field of education. They mainly arrived from the different faculties of the University of West-Hungary (Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Pedagogy and Faculty of Geoinformatics). Other participants represented the Budapest Polytechnic Faculty of Electronic Engineering and Institute of History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Each day an expert on social software gave a lecture via video conferencing from different locations in Europe and the USA.
Hands-on exercises and all-round practice were key features of this Summer School, using social software both as subject and as means of interaction between the participating European partners!
Examples of social software we used with the help of our local expert Antal Guszlev (adjunct professor at the Department of Geoinformatics) during the Summers School are wiki's, weblogs (http://venusweb2.freeblog.hu), skype, flashmeeting, flickr, del.icio.us, LinkedIn. These were practised daily for various purposes.
