What Can Mashups Offer?

I have been invited to give a talk on mashups at the annual conference for JISC Regional Support Centres (RSCs).  To support my talk I have written a briefing document giving An Introduction To Mashups.  I would welcome feedback on this document (the master copy of which is an A5 printed document, which provides a mechanism for keeping the content brief and to the point).  Also note that a Creative Commons licence is available for this document, so feel free to reuse the content (and I hope anyone who may wish to use this document will be motivated to provide feedback).

In addition to the document I am also interested in examples of mashups, primarily in educational contexts to help RSCs  to succeed in their mission: to stimulate and support innovation in learning. 

I will, of course, make the materials I produce available under a Creative Commons licence.


  1. One mashup I have recently found useful was the Yahoo Pipes Mashup for ALT-C.

    Another mashup tool I find useful is Frappr, of which there are various educational examples out there.


  2. While focus is good and I guess the Web side of things is what y’are all about, I can’t help but wonder if your definition of mash up needs broadening – or at least this wider context needs mentioning?

    For example:


    Highlights the “Mash Up” day.

    These kind of events seem a good way: “to stimulate and support innovation in learning” before getting the Web involved… :-)
