How I share course material!

What is in it for me?

Discovering new collegues

If you are a specialist the next expert in your field is often at quite a distance. By sharing I am discovered and I discover others.

Building professional network

Exposure to peer review


Email through contact info

Filtering of web content

My network tells me what is important!

To be informed

Involve students in discovering in building of content

Educational goals

Introduction and exposure to Web 2.0 as life long learning tool

"You can do it too!" by using "free" tools

This also means to use as few restricted (costly) tools as possible.

The world is changing! So are the resources in the course.

Exposure to sharing

Facilitate social constructivism

Facilitate building of student's professional networks
