Here in a few minutes we’re going to host the last of our open house demos of the TeamSpot collaborative software. As you may recall this software was part of the Founder’s Endowment Grant that is loving refered to as the “Learning Cave:” basically, the University gave us a bunch of money toput in some cool new collaborative software, flexible seating so that students could make the space suit the size of their group, comfortable chairs, and other amenities that transform a stodgy old collection space to a vibrant new group study space.
So far we’ve had a pretty fair number of students come in and get the demo, but I know there are a lot more out there who need to be reached. To that end I have put aside time, specifically for student groups, to make appointments with me so that I can give them an introduction to the software.
From now until February 19th, simply email me (tbostell at u dot washington dot edu) or call me (253 692 4650) at least a day or two in advance and pick one of the two times I’ve set aside (9-10am or 4-5pm) and I will meet your group and give a live demo. It’s about a 15-20 minute presentation and we do a hands-on demonstration and we can do it with your laptops or the library’s laptops — your choice.
Also, if you’re a faculty or staff person and you know of some students who need to work on projects like this, please feel free to contact me: I’ll come to your classroom, send an email, talk on the phone, whatever it takes to get your class up to speed.
Right, that’s it, gotta teach another class. See you in the collaboration studio!
