I am honored to have met you. Thank you for passing on your passion and enthusiasm for e-learning in developing countries.
I think they do remain, but I am sure Sylvia knows best.
Nellie - you have worked very hard in this session - thanks for really encouraging us.
Thank you for your kind words and for your contribution to the discussions.
I too join with Nellie to thanks to all. Knowledge sharing is great thing! We will look forward for better conversations…if you are interesting in Sri LanKa as a developing country for research or any other purpose I am always with you to help as I can……I like to share knowledge….!!!!!!!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Nellie,as Emma mentioned you are a great leader with broad intellectual capacity. You took us through with courage. It is honor to meet a friend like you…..I think we can at least contribute towards to the development of the e-learning.
Sylvia you guide us to the very end……thnks…million……
BTW My doctoral research study will include the human element (Rogerian) in the process of change from traditional to e-learning environments. I just received approval.
It was interesting to see the conversations and information about the seminar discussion spilling over into other venues. For example, over at the Online Facilitation list a member shared an excellent resource, CoPsDev, which was developed as a project in the CPSquare Foundations of Communities of Practice Workshop. The Facebook Group: eLearning in Developing Countries, was started up by Nellie and seminar participants are migrating there to continue the sharing. Also, watch for an Open Weekend discussion that focuses on educational tools in developing countries over at Knowplace.ca (scheduled for early November, I believe).
Through this discussion the Development Gateway Foundation learned about SCoPE and has extended an invitation to become a partner and cooperating organization with the E-Learning dgCommunity. If you aren't familiar with the work of this foundation I recommend checking it out!
We got a start on pulling out resources into our seminar Wiki, but it proved difficult to maintain! We can continue to build this together, so feel free to add the resources and highlights that you found to be useful. Also, the scope722 can be tagged on to your del.icio.us bookmarks or anywhere else that you want to associate a resource with the seminar.
All in all, this has been a very productive seminar discussion! Thank you Nellie and Nalin for volunteering your time to facilitate such an important seminar, and thanks everyone for your excellent contributions. As always, these discussions remain available to the public.
Our next seminar discussion, Social Media in Education, begins November 5, November 12, 2007 and is organized in collaboration with BCcampus Online Learning Communities. I hope to see you all there!
