How can we use the VLN / Enabling e-Learning for our own learning?

I thought I'd start this thread is for anyone who is still interested in working out what this community space can do for their learning - for example, you might be working out how to tailor your emails, or whether to use a blog or a discussion forum for your questions.

If you are/have attended the free Enabling e-Learning workshop on how to use the VLN Groups (24 Feb), you may still have a few questions - and if you missed it, you can ask for help here instead.

So, ask away - or share how you have set up and are using the space. The only silly queston is the one not asked;-)

Cheers, Karen.

    Agree with Annemarie, Ra.. I used youtube in my classes, and if you want to do a screencast, to explain what to do on the computer to students, then Jing is a great freebie.  Good on you for joining the VLN, and get in there and lurk, you will find so many ideas..

    Regarding curriculum resources on another thread, Tessa, I wonder if good practical things to do could be organised into timeframes

    eg 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours 1 day and open ended. Then people could tag the resources as well to indicate if it is from a certain area of the curriculum or a key competency that is being developed.. The curriculum levels could also be tagged.. Mainly I think teachers want a searchable database in just about any area they could think of with a bit of structure say around inquiry, something that there is not a lot of out there. For example if you search for photosynthesis of course you get a lot of content around photosynthesis but do you get an open ended inquiry lesson?

    This is what I hope(d) that N4 L might provide but maybe it is going just to be a network of fast pipes through which we can access the VLN for uploading and downloading???. I could go on, but hey, someone else might have better ideas.....

    And finally RSS rules, keep in touch with the VLN by using it! Sob, google reader is dying.
