WeegieRugbyTV – Episode 2

The evolution of WeegieRugbyTV continues with Episode 2.

This week we have the included match photos and videos from the Glasgow Uni Medics v Cowal game and the Strathendrick v East Kilbride game.

Including the photos and videos extends the episode to 5 minutes and we’ll need to gauge if this is too long (will keep an eye on average viewing time). But in saying that, we’ve included two game which we wouldn’t normally do.

Will also experiment on the video, should we be using zoom to get close to the action, or not, so we can get more of what’s happening.

 

What Will Leclercq Want from their $6m Investment in Moodle

Founded in 2001, Moodle is a leading light in the opensource movement. By relying on partners (there’s currently 84 of them) to pay royalties for using the software, end-users get the software for free (but paying for support and services) whilst funds are generated for the central project.

Success (or lack of it) in IT Projects

We have billions of £s being spent in IT projects, but an Axelos report suggests that 40% of these are on course to fail – so what do we need to do to improve the odds of success.

They’ve identified the main issues as:

  • significant changes to the project brief (45 per cent);
  • unrealistic timeframes (41 per cent);
  • an incomplete understanding of the risks (48 per cent);
  • projects not resourced with the right people (42 per cent);
  • lack of a clearly defined goals (49 per cent), and
  • overrun budgets (32 per cent)

But note, Axelos was set up to develop, manage and operate qualifications in project management methodology – so maybe a bit of vested interest in pushing for greater structure to project management.
