  • This is the first post back in 2007 and still accessible, as are all past course work, including students’ comments. We also have links to current and former students’ own course blogs and wikis. How does this change the way we can teach and learn?\n

  • Challenge was in meeting the needs of a member of our learning community who was based at a branch campus and couldn’t make our f2f meeting times.\n
  • \n
  • Main learning environment is not behind a walled garden of a course management system, but rather open to the world via our blog and our wiki.\n
  • Learning opportunities don’t need to end when the course ‘ends’. Collaboration and engagement can continue with social media tools like this wiki.\n
  • Our community of practice can include individuals we’ve never met but who share a common passion and from whom we can learn.\n
  • We share a continuously growing COLLABORATIVE collection of resources that we can all access online anytime, anywhere, even after the course ends.\n
