  • Good afternoon, as you can see from the program, this is a very collective presentation. Me and Elisa, representing a group of persons who participated to this experience, We want to present some reflections about it. So, this is not a technical presentation, we are not technical people, this is only a story about an online course and a community but we guess it could be useful for showing a possible new way of “collaboration” and, above all, a new way to bridge formal and informal learning using the net.
