Case Studies of Use of IT by Morris, Sword and Related Sides
Morris, sword and related dance sides use a variety of online services and other IT tools to support their activities including marketing, recruitment, team communications, dance tutorials, supporting musicians and singers and recording and preserving team memories.
Documenting how IT is being used can be helpful for a number of groups: (1) it can provide documentation for use by the team (if, for example, roles changes or people leave the side); (2) so that others can learn from your experiences; (3) allow others to comment on and provide feedback on your approaches; (4) raise the profile of your side and (5) raise the quality of use of IT by the entire community.
Share Your Experiences
In order to fulfil these goals, we invite people to provide case studies which document their use of IT and online services.
Case studies need not be long or go into detailed technical descriptions. They should summarise what was done and for what purpose; summarise the benefits provided; give advice on lessons learnt or things you would do differently if you had to do it again and outlines any further developments planned.
Your case study should include a summary of your side and can also provide a profile of the author(s).
A case study template is available.
If you’d like to write a case study you should contact Brian Kelly, the Communications and IT volunteer with the Morris Federation (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
We welcome feedback on the case study resources. We also welcome suggestions for other IT-related topics which could be included. You can either:
