Using WikiEducator for PCF5: your first steps

PCF5 and WikiEducator have teamed up to offer an exciting service for delegates to the Fifth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF5). WikiEducator is a resource developed by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), putting wiki technology at the service of those who are involved in educational research and practice. With 'openness' being a key theme of PCF5, WikiEducator will provide an optional avenue through which delegates can post their abstracts, develop their papers and engage in a dialogue with a wider community.
