Innovative reading list wins 'Developer Happiness' prize

Innovative reading list wins 'Developer Happiness' prize"An innovative, web 2.0-friendly reading list prototype has won first prize in a JISC competition designed to encourage innovation and collaboration among Higher Education software developers. The competition stemmed from the dev8D Developer Happiness event in February, the first JISC-sponsored event of its kind to gather software developers from HE as well as commercial backgrounds, to collaborate and work on innovative ideas for solutions to common educational issues. The winning entry, from a team at the University of Kent, is a reading list prototype called List8D. This innovation would help academic staff create and manage web 2.0-friendly reading lists more easily. It would also allow the delivery of personalised reading lists to students, with direct links to catalogue items and books for purchase via Amazon"
