#50 Collaboration and technology

Andrew Middleton speaks with Matt Gough about collaboration and technology. The interview followed a performance by Matt in collaboration with three other artists who between them used dance and various new and old technologies to transfer and mediate knowledge.
It is hoped that by immediately reflecting on this successful technology mediated collaboration understanding of the dynamics and potential of collaboration and technology will be found.
The performance took place in the Real-time Collaborative Art Making workshop organised by Dr Greg Sportan of the Visualisation Research unit at the University of Central England. See for resources relating to this workshop.
Notes made during the workshop can be found at

This episode describes how a web-based application called MyChingo is allowing academics to invite students to leave voice notes in their Blackboard courses. We hear from Cheryl Middleton an academic in the ACES faculty, a student placement who worked with Cheryl, one of the students from her course and my colleague Helen Rodger who tested the MyChingo device for ease of use.
