World of Web Technologies, 26th of March 2010

Our ‘Showcase’ event, which we renamed as the “World of Web Technologies” (bit more meaningful) was a great success, with a non-stop stream of staff and students from across the University coming  to learn more about what they could do with todays web tools. We’ve assembled a collection of media here which we captured during the day, and will add in the survey results once we’ve compiled them.

Visitors and presenters were tweeting, and creating an instant blog using their mobile phones while enjoying the show.
