Spotlight on…University of Glamorgan

University of Glamorgan
The University of Glamorgan recently held their launch event on 22nd July for the “G-Blog” http://g-blog.glam.ac.uk/ and was attended by 50 people. The ten local businesses recruited for the trial project were involved and one of the guest speakers highlighted some Web 2.0 networking tools for businesses. The trial project has invited ten SME’s to join with them in the hope of creating a vibrant and useful blog.
The local Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) Business Club had been very proactive in publicising the project and given great support towards the launch. In spite of the RCT Business Club having an almost complete change of personnel, the result has been close co-operation and a very successful partnership.
The trial project also took part in an Elluminate session with the BCE project team and found it very useful. As a result they are now considering using it as a permanent communication tool within the project.
Looking further over the months ahead, the ten businesses will be given their login details and make their first posts and G-Blog activity will be monitored with interaction from Academics from the Business School. The trial project will also look to recruit additional 15 SME’s to participate and recruit more academics from across all faculties.
