e-Learning for Development: a model

Isma has posted a working version of his paper, e-Learning for Development: a model and if you’ve got some time I recommend you scoot over and take a look!

“Beginning with a very brief case study of a free e-learning for development project, the Campus for Peace of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, this paper will try and show how, thanks to the nature of nonprofit organizations, e-learning can solve most of the problems related to corporate training, education for development and e-advocacy for stakeholders. And this paper will try and show also how, just because of the nature of nonprofit organizations too, this can be done for free.” [my emphasis]

We’re all going down the same road… how long till stuff starts tipping?

On that note, if you fancy a chuckle you should head over here and read a press release by Deakin on the podcasting project I’ve been setting up for the last 9 months or so. Now, what else was happening 9 months or so ago… hmmmmm… no links, you’ll have to figure it out for yourselves, but how the wheel turns eh :D

“Now Deakin students studying via distance can download John Carmichael’s incarnation of the ‘fireside’ chat from a weblog on the Deakin website and catch up, using their iPod if they wish, with what has been going on in the world of competition law. (Competition law principles now ensure the price of mp3 players (generic ipods) has fallen below $100.)”
