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

some tags. What can I say?)

  • 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"
