Web 2.0 and virtual collaborative Clinical Practice

Researchers from Plymouth have a range of ideas for how Web 2.0 tools (predominantly blogs/ wikis/podcasts) might be used for Clinical practice education. They have links to a range of sites (including a FluWiki) This might well tie in with the work we’re looking at in the ExPRET Centre.

  1. I’m interested in getting synthesised speech to read stuff on some of my web pages, so I was excited by your ‘Listen to this podcast’ feature. What I have in mind is getting the system to read notes that are *not* on the web page but are associated with it. Typically a web page might show an example of something, perhaps a video or a screen capture image, and the spoken words would explain what the image was about. A print version of the same thing would show the image and the explanation in print form (naturally). Any ideas how the technique used here could be repurposed?

  2. No …
    There are quite a few tools that exist now for reading text … though I’ve seen what I think is what you’re thinking of implemented more in thing like Director than in a web page.
    You’d have to have something that will feed the text to an MP3 generator … student project???
