Might it be good to have an A4L/Analytics for Learn group as a separate group or within this main group?
I agree. Also might it make sense to set up groups for each of the products and a general group? What does this mean for CourseSites? Is it going away now?
Kevin Joseph Toni Pennacchia- Great ideas! Dan Rinzel and I were just chatting about an Analytics focused discussion area. I am researching the pros and cons of breaking all discussion areas into product vs. role based. If you add a tag to each question or discussion, you can actually use that tag to search for all related content. I think this may be the easiest way to sort on product focused conversations while we then create specific discussion groups for area of expertise (ie: System Admin, Educator, Instructional Design, etc). Does that make sense? Thoughts?
I would be a little concerned at how well people would be at tagging their messages, but would be willing to try. It would be very different from how coursesites is currently organized. As far as areas of expertise in analytics area I would suggest (and I don't like naming things) - ETL designer, report writer (maybe separate for SSRS and Pyramid and other?), star schema designer - but those may be too specific.
I think there should be separate discussions for products - e.g. groups for analytics, collaborate, etc. - tagging just won't cut it.I realise this may be against the prevailing "one solution" approach, but the reality is lagging somewhat behind the spin at present.
I don't do that much tagging and I agree with Malcolm M and Toni P.
