Research1 - Digital Media Community Platform for Public Outreach and e-Science Collaboration
Time 10/09/07 03:00PM-04:00PM
Research1 is a web-based collaboration platform being developed by ResearchChannel. Its primary functions are to serve as a premier outlet for researchers and academics to fulfill their public outreach requirements, foster interaction and communication between scientists, educators, students and the public, and to provide a collaborative research environment for teams who could potentially be geographically dispersed. Individual researchers or teams can establish or enhance their outreach capabilities by creating their own Research1 "Project Hub" that offers digital media distribution/storage and community features, including blogs and forums, managed from one easy-to-use web interface. The speakers will describe the framework and deployment timeline, and extend an invitation to the global research community to become involved in the project.
