Discussion on how schools are using Blogs, Wikis and Journals

Collaborate recording: Bb Collaborate 

 

Thanks everyone for joining today's user group call, I am glad to see the group gaining momentum with more and more new participants joining!

 

For the next meeting each participate is asked to do some homework!  Please check how Wikis, Journals and Blogs are used at your institution and share your update during the next meeting.  You can check today's recording, jumping to 4:20 for the details on the homework assignment.

 

Last but not least, I will be on annual leave for a couple of weeks and unable to join the next two calls.  Lloyd Powell has offered to chair the meetings while I am away and to post the recordings on the community website.

 

Thanks,

Angelo

11 Quick Tips to Improve Course Content Accessibility

We will create a file and add her PDF.

As discussed during the last couple of meetings, we have organized a special session for the second occurrence of the August meetings:  as most of us will be at the T&L Conference in Sydney, what better occasion to meet face to face?

 

We had to change the date and time of the meeting to fit into the T&L program, and to have a room available.  As such this occurrence is on Thursday, at 1.15pm AEST.  The calendar event on the community site has been updated.

 

Hope yo see you all in Sydney next week!
