Just a quick note to commend DundeePRN to you all. I helped set up the site last year with a group of second years. The site is going very well – the 3rd years are now up and running with their materials this year, and things are going from strength to strength. There’s 3 podcasts this year, already!
What the site really needs is some 2nd years (and 1st, 4th and 5th years) to get involved in writing content, posting comments, and making things happen. Head over to the site, register, and start contributing.
If you want some assistance with recording podcasts, writing content, etc, just let me know.
It’s web 2.0, then? What happened to web 1.1.4, and web 1.3.8? What about web “Snow Cheetah”? Well, it’s web 2.0 until we get to web 4.0, I’m told. So about time we got with the program, and brought the Dundee Medical Course into the “teen-ies” (after the nought-ies….). The Dundee Blogging Network aims to do just that, and spearheading the attack is DundeePRN. I don’t know of any other medical school who is running the same thing: a student led; student written; student delivered; student edited, moderated and administrated web based resource of the same scope as DundeePRN.
A couple of the students have put in literally hundreds of hours over the past 4 months putting this together, and the fruits of their labours are starting to be evident now.
We launched the site during lectures today (DundeeChest braving the outside world despite his precarious post operative condition), and already we have over 60 users registered with the site. We start the analytics from today, to see how the site is utilised – we hope to get the other years involved in this as soon as possible.
The site is available to everyone and anyone – some pages are only visible to registered users, but there’s nothing stopping anyone registering.
