More discussion available at: Blog Post

 

Trick: use a tag that is specific to yourself or your group, e.g., blogthis, linkthis, collab201

 

Recent example in com-prac:

Peripheral, not rigorous, but perhaps thought provoking, you might

want to look at what people have tagged as "community_indicators" in

http://del.icio.us/tag/community_indicators and

http://www.technorati.com/tag/communityindicators and/or

http://www.technorati.com/tag/community_indicators (I screwed up on

some tags. What can I say?)

Central ideas of eLearning 2.0

 

  • Extending the platform - e-Learning 2.0 is about using specialized software extensions developed by and for educators, as well as with rich, interactive digital resources.

 

  • Facilitate Social Networking - e-Learning 2.0 is about enabling a social experience that recognizes the course is but one social-organizational group in a broader education environment.

 

  • Enable Lifelong Learning - e-Learning 2.0 is about integrating the educational journey across a longer period of time through techniques such as "e-Portfolios"

 

  • Create Network Learning Environments - e-Learning 2.0 is about moving beyond the course towards a more holistic conception of a networked learning environment
