Bob -- Box of Broadcasts (BoB)


About Bob

Welcome to the support mailing list for volunteers involved in the pilot of the Box of Broadcasts (BoB) National off-air digital recording and archiving system.

Faculty VLE Support teams and SDDU have teamed up with ISS, the Library and the central VLE Support Service to run a pilot of the BoB system.

We invite you to join us in having a go with BoB as friendly users and to feedback your experiences with the system on this mailing list.

In the process we hope to spot and overcome any technical difficulties that may be encountered and formulate a comprehensive response to user FAQs as part of an effective training and support network.

We look forward to hearing all about your experiences and sharing with you are own discoveries.
