There is a general meeting on April 21st at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific) for everyone involved in, or interested in learning more about, the collaborative book project . The book outline has undergone some substantial revisions and it will be shared at this meeting.

Here's the message posted by Sandy Hirtz in the BCcampus eLearning Marketplace and Expo:

===snip===
Collaborative Book Project
Project Update and Discussion Opportunity
A live, informal, discussion and update session to answer questions, share resources, collaborate with section contributors, give feedback and discuss pertinent issues. A "first edit" of the outline will be available and new mayors will be introduced and welcomed.

This session is for all community members interested in learning more about the project, sharing resources and providing feedback.
