e-Learning Round-Up | 1 February 2012

Haere mai and welcome back to term 1! This is the time when you're feeling fresh, keen to engage others in the community in planning and developing your thinking for the year ahead.

We invite you to post questions for 2012 in one of our groups. Whether your e-learning question relates to Teaching, Technologies, Professional Learning or Leadership, there is a group for you. Follow the links in the Enabling e-Learning parent group page [/pg/groups/118255/enabling-elearning/], or talk to us via Twitter or Facebook.

We look forward to working with you this year!
