Steering Group Meeting

On Thursday, we had our fourth steering group meeting, which proved very inspiring. We showcased what has been completed under the OVAL project so far and what is going on at the moment.

All of the 100 pages created from CABI datasheets and their respective flashcards have now been completed. They are going through a review process and once reviewed, they are being publicised on WikiVet front page, Twitter and Facebook. They are also mentioned in this blog. The reviewed pages are than translated into French and Spanish and podcasts are recorded of them in the three languages too. These podcasts are published on iTunes. The WikiVet pages are also being used to provide public friendly version of the text on Wikipedia with a reference link back to WikiVet.

All of the Manson Q&A book sample questions are also already available on WikiVet. Some still require few images and completion of pages they link to, but majority is well under way.

Some of the staff have also Skyped in to provide a brief report on their work for OVAL. We discussed plans for dissemination and further focus group sessions. To see the meeting minutes see the pdf document on WikiVet.

As part of the ongoing process, three more pages have also been reviewed. Why not have a look at what it is all about?
