    EduGeek Newsletter

    Morning all,

    i Just wanted to know everyone thoughts on the Edugeek Newsletter:

    1) Do you still want it published and made available to you?
    2) What do you want in the Edugeek Newsletter
    3) Is a Mailing list a good idea so you can get it mailed to you monthly
    4) Would you read it or don't you want it

    Just want some feedback guys, as i am thinking of taking it on to produce monthly and just want to know what every would like and if it is worth it so to speak.

    Thanks for your input

    Regards

    James.

    I think it sounds like a good idea - getting the news that is relevant to us without having to scour the net for it.

    I'm happy to help out with articles too if you want?

    I can see this working one of two ways

    1)Either publish news on main website and then a weekly/monthly newsletter highlighting recent published stories and forum topics.

    2) Alternative is producing content in monthly newsletter like we did for the idg magazine at BETT so 3/4 good length articles

    Better option I see if number one this way we get up to date news on site but then also have mail out to remind people that are members and also to highlight content might be forgotten.

    Well, the kind of thing you are looking at is anything related to IT in education - Software & hardware reviews. Day in a life of a tech (each month different tech so we all see what each other does). BSF info. Just things like that.

    At least that's my two pennies

    I just know that if these came out weekly, they'd never get read by me. They would stack up in my in box for when I've got time and then be deleted.

    Monthly and I'd make time to go through it.

    Monthly is good for me ... I never get time to read Computing or IT Week either.

    Monthly would be best - that way the content isn't rushed.

    Yea i always had it set to be monthly, i dont have that much time or mosy importantly information to add into a weekly newsletter.

    In a month theres allot that can happen giving me stuff to actually put in there instead of repeating myself in newsletters week after week.

    Reviews of kit from a school use point of view would be great. Desktops, laptops, digital cameras etc.
