Knowledge, Learning, Community
A year or two or so ago the people who run BBC's e-learning web offerings asked me for my thoughts on how the site should be organized, to which I responded with a long discussion about personalization and what I called at the time 'vectors' - essentially an approach to allow multiple perspectives to be offered on the same body of information. I don't know how much influence my comments had, if any, and I don't see them reflected particularly here, which is OK, because I think what the BBC has done is interesting and worthy of note. Martin Belam offers in this series of articles (Part One, Part Two, Part Three) an in-depth exploration of what the BBC has done with its site, a series well worth exploring if the design and management of large bodies of information is of interest to you.
