Thoughts on Institutional and Personal Dashboards 

Tony Hirst has just alerted me to the post on Minding the shop in which back in December 2009 @lessteph outlined a dashboard “which lets me see quickly if our sites are up, what’s hot on them right now, who’s sending us traffic”.

The dashboard is based on an idea originally developed by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

My thoughts:

  • Can something similar be done to provide an institutional dashboard?
  • Can such a dashboard be published to demonstrate an institution’s committment to openness and transparency?
  • Can a personal dashboard be produced to show an individual’s engagement with social media?
