This post will provide some useful advice on how to navigate around our blog.


Have something to say? Want to voice your views? Disagree with the blog content? Well say something about it! Most blogs will have to option to ‘leave a comment’ – ours can be found just under the title of each blog post, as demonstrated in the image below.

We wish to constantly improve our blog and are very interested in hearing from our readers, so please leave a comment if you have something to say!


Tags are a way to organise lots of information, they are short descriptions for a subject.

For example, our articles ‘Can simulation lead to negotiation?’ and ‘Do they love bees?’ are both about gaming, and therefore come under the gaming tag.

Our tags can be found next to each of articles on the right hand side ->


Really love reading a particular blog and find it rather tedious having to keep going to the web address to check for updates? Fear not, a handy little tool called the RSS Feed can solve your problems.

Even if you aren’t particularly technology-savvy the RSS feed is easy to use, sometimes called a ‘News Feed’. When a blog or article is published, it will automatically be sent to your e-mail address.

If you wish to subscribe to our posts, the RSS feed at the top of the page on the right hand side. As shown in the picture below.


Widgets grab 'live' content from web sites so you don't have to visit them to stay up-to-date with the latest information.

The widgets on this blog include: ‘Public Experience’, ‘KCCInnovation on Delicious’, our ‘Scribd’ and our ‘Slide Share’, which can be seen in the picture below. Therefore, if you want to be kept updated with the team on our other applications, just come to the blog and click on our ‘widgets’!

Contacting Us

For most blogs and websites, details will be provided of how to contact the authors. If you wish to contact our team, a list of e-mail addresses for each member can be found under ‘Who Are We?’. As emphasised at the end of each article, if you have an opinion, idea or are conducting similar work to us, please don’t hesitate to drop us an e-mail! We’d love to hear from you!

Hopefully this article will have given you a better idea of the features on our blog, if there is anything else you are unsure of just leave or comment or e-mail us!
