Turning the digital divide into digital dividends
The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) has recently published the 2nd revised edition of E-Learning. A guidebook of Principles, Procedures and Practices. COL has also agreed to release a wiki version of this guide under a free content license which will enable you to use this resource in your own insitution. However, we need assistance in converting this material into wiki format and hope that you will be able to assist us. If we spread this load across the Commonwealth – we can make rapid progress. So I’m hoping that there are colleagues in New Zealand who could donate a few hours of their time. Ultimately this project will be for the benefit of all. You will be free to use these materials for professional development at your own organisation.
Here is the homepage for this free content guide: http://www.wikieducator.org/WikiEdProfessional_eLearning_Guidebook#We_need_your_help
Please consult the planning page: http://www.wikieducator.org/WikiEdProfessional_eLearning_Guidebook/Planning
Working together we can achieve so much more. Please forward this email to colleagues who may be able to assist.
With kind regards
