Podcast #6 – Anti-social learning: the legal risks of Web 2.0

Blogs, wikis, and video sharing sites to name but a few are now common daily haunts for millions of people, so it’s no surprise organisations want to leverage these services for people development. The user generated content and social interactivity that characterises these so called ‘Web 2.0 technologies’ is ideal both for formal and informal learning.

But before your organisation rushes in with a Web 2.0 based solution, make sure anyone who intends to launch a participatory web service for learning, communications, or knowledge management is aware of the legal aspects.

  1. Thanks for the podcast. It contained some interesting stuff. Can I ask that you also provide a text based version? The cast is very long (28 mins.) and I haven’t got a lot of time.

  2. Robert,
    Thanks for your comments.
    We do have a short summary of the ‘cast – we’ll upload so that there’s a take away for listeners.

    We generally have a discussion around our topics, and usually only have some jottings unless we’re giving out a ‘take away’. We’d love to do transcripts, but time doesn’t allow it – our fee earning stuff gets in the way of doing that!

    Our second season of podcasts (starting in November) are going to be a bit shorter – hopefully making them a little bit more accessible to our time pressed audience.
