Abstract

The CloudBank project aims to build a mobile- and web-based crowd-sourced information system to help international students further their knowledge and understanding of local UK language and culture. The system enables students to collect, annotate, and tag interesting or puzzling language- and culture-related content found in everyday life, including text, images, and other media, and to upload these content items to a repository. From the repository, the information can be syndicated, e.g. via RSS feeds/widgets integrated into websites, blogs and profile pages, and alerts to subscribing mobile phones.
