Issues around using templates by Mind Map: Issues around using templates

1. how much guidance do we have to give? e.g. what if someone sets up a discussion forum without realising how much time it takes

2. what basics could there be?

2.1. "small research project"

2.1.1. easy to use project calendar

2.2. "website"

2.2.1. home page

2.2.2. contact us page

2.2.3. about the project page

2.2.4. incorporate project logo on every page

2.4.3. space to display worked examples

2.5.1. form for people to fill in

2.5.2. conference programme

2.5.3. contact details

2.6.3. way to get the upcoming readings

2.6.4. way to get the past readings

2.6.5. way to look at upcoming readings

2.6.6. poss three pages done automatically (bit like Talks.cam) - home page has this week's details and the readings; 'previous meetings' page holds previous details (or a cut down version of previous details) and the readings; 'upcoming meetings' page holds details of upcoming meetings and their readings

2.6.7. need way to allow people to make each page public or private, but at the same time to respect the copyright on the readings (note that we believe that scanning and uploading readings for reading groups is not covered by the scanning license??)

2.6.8. info about the convenors

2.6.9. easy way to invite people into your reading group

2.6.10. easy way to request to join a reading group mailing list if appropriate

2.6.11. easy way to request to join a reading group and see pages / download handouts if they are generally kept private

2.7. student study group (from Umme's descriptions in the Academic Networking project)

2.7.1. info about who is a member of this study group (maybe their pictures and contact details, maybe even mobile numbers)

2.7.2. somewhere to share documents of various sorts, labelled with who contributed them and when (people )

2.7.3. maybe if you set up a study group with people, they automatically get created as members of your network

2.7.4. a way to share photos / images, and to leave comments on them ? (optional)

2.7.5. a way to comment on / hold discussions on other people's documents

2.7.6. a way to write info straight onto pages ? a sort of wiki like idea

2.9.5. simple ways to book equipment / rooms etc (e.g. way of having multiple schedules)

3. Get started!

4. do all research projects want the same thing?

4.1. sharing files

4.1.1. New node

4.2. commenting on files

4.3. publicising their project

4.4. New node

5. what happens if people want things that CamTools can't yet offer?

6. How practical do we have to be? Do we need to stick to what CT offers now?

7. should there be tips on using the different sorts of templates? e.g. "if you want to set up a reading group, here are some tips from other University members"

8. what extras could there be?

8.1. ask for help / ideas from colleagues / people in the same field e.g. CTLH-1936

8.2. way to create your website offline in editor of your choice and then host it in CamTools? (Issue would be the menu) CTLH-15216
