10am to 1pm

Introduction

Workflow is a Mahara-based eStudio / ePortfolio platform which supports the development, documenting and sharing of ideas and creative practice online. Introduced in 2011 as a ‘proof of concept’,  Workflow is now very heavily used by students and academics throughout UAL. Using Workflow, students can collect and organise their work and share it with peers, tutors and the whole world.

Workflow gives users a flexible framework for capturing reflection with comprehensive privacy, sharing and feedback options. It is also ideal for documenting work projects as it utilises; a personal file repository, collaborative spaces, multimedia support and a drag-and-drop interface for designing pages.

What is the overall aim? 

To introduce and explore the opportunities Workflow presents for effective and engaging learning and teaching, and to familiarise participants with its key features.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to:
  • Understand the applications of Workflow within learning and teaching
  • Explore the potential uses of Workflow in your own teaching context
  • Log in, create and edit pages and find other users
  • Upload and organise media in the file repository
  • Share content and leave feedback on other users' content
  • Create a group and understand the different types of group available
  • Be aware of copyright issues in the digital domain
