    Kia ora Matene and welcome to the VLN.

    I am part of the online team and we are here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have joined some e-learning related groups, maybe I could suggest some other groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join this group too./groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/ There are several more e-learning sub-groups you might like to join too for on-going conversations.

    Each fortnight we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, [/blog/group/118255/all].

    If you want to know more about VLN/Enabling e-Learning community groups, you can view this webinar recording >>> http://

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Tessa.

    Welcome to the iPad group on the VLN.

    There are lots of great resources to be found here particularly in the discussions and bookmarks.
