Today we started the netbook project with the second year Diploma of Landscape Design students and staff. All students and staff were issued a Dell Mini9 netbook for use in their course for the rest of the year. the netbooks will be used as ‘windows’ into the online web 2.0 world – students will be blogging, uploading and sharing photos and VODCasts of their designs and learning experiences.
This project follows on from a collaborative web 2.0 project between Landscape Design and third year Product Design students on the SHac09 sustainable house competition, where NING was used as a collaborative online space.
