This claim has repeatedly been associated with the development and introduction of a collaborative Web, commonly referred to as 'Web 2.0' as well as its offspring, a semantically enriched Web 3.0 still in the making.

Web 2.0 and the Social Web are terms which are now being used widely. But what do these terms mean? And what, if anything, can Web 2.0 and the Social Web offer to museums, libraries and archives, especially small organisations with limited budgets and technical expertise?

This workshop will attempt to answer these questions. As well as demystifying the terms and the technologies, the workshop will also address the challenges which institutions may face in seeking to make use of Web 2.0 to support the needs of their users.

Authentic assessment refers both to the alignment of assessment with the actual outcomes of students' learning, and to the utilisation in assessment of approximations of real-world situations within which knowledgeable activity might take place. In both cases, student learning is assumed to be intimately connected with the manner in which they are assessed, and that students will be more highly motivated to learn if their assessment is authentic.
