Sharing Ideas and Good ICT

April 5, 2009

A few weeks ago I gave a presentation I’d been trying to put together for the best part of six months and this evening I’ve sent it on to the users who attended and who were unable to attend but showed an interest.  I realised at this point I hadn’t actually blogged about it so I thought I might put together a little post about it.

The aim was simply to share some ideas and some bits of ICT that could help people do their jobs quicker/better/cheaper/economically/more easily.  Many of these were based upon queries from users and solutions  found or in some cases pre-emptively finding options for issues that have yet to be raised.

A note was put into the staff briefing and some posters put up around the office to try and get people along to the presentation.  The attendance was surprisingly low and it’s unfortunate in terms of what people missed out on but I thought I’d highlight the areas that were discussed and some high level points on what was demonstrated and discussed.

The presentation was split into four main sections – software, hardware, web sites and engaging with the ICT team.

Software

  • Skype
  • Working with PDFs
    • Microsoft Office plug ins
    • PDF printers
    • PDF Bulder Toolkit
    • Drawloop.com
  • Public Folders in Outlook

Hardware

  • Photocopiers
    • Printing
    • Scanning
    • Secure printing & scanning
  • Data Capture
    • Dictaphones
    • Digital cameras
    • DigiMemo
    • MIMIO
  • Communication
    • Teleconferencing units
    • Audio/telephony cabling

Web Sites

Engaging with ICT

  • Service Desk
    • Queries
    • Training
  • Invitation
    • Project meetings
    • Team meetings
  • Communications
    • Presentations
    • Briefings
    • Mailings
    • Bulletins
    • Newsletters

I don’t plan on publishing the presentation widely as much of it is only directly relevant to Academy ICT users in the way it is presented, but the outline above gives an indication of the content and areas in which the user community is developing.

Hopefully some imminent developments might help create a greater sharing of such ideas and information within a community and build a better culture of knowledge sharing and management.
