JISC – ooh, what next?

Maybe ‘crowdsourcing’ isn’t so new? – the victorians, the troubles in Northern Ireland.

Today we’ve seen a range of projects, covering many subject areas.

If we made a word cloud from today, the big ones would be: creating stories, curation, identity

How does JISC see crowdsourcing? We do lots of other stuff in terms of digital content as well – large scale digitisation. It should not be something different in the future – how can we work with all different types of users? It’s also about research and having a purpose.

Forthcoming JISC calls: (not ‘interest for the general public’)

  • digitisation via OER
  • large scale digitisation
  • clustering digital content
