having gone through the person specifications and the rules, this is to express my interest in "Moodle in the Commonwealth" project. This sounds interesting, and with my web search skills and online survey experiences, I am confident to complete this task on time. I am available during December 2007 for this task, and if the timing is OK, consider my name. My contact details are as follows:

Dear Sanjaya,

Thanks for your expression of interest in this project. We plan to accept expressions of interest until 10 November and will keep the community informed of developments on this page.

Dear Sanjaya

I am happy to announce that we accept your bounty proposal and given the rather later response than anticipated that we will target a completion date by the end of January 2008.

Does this work for you?

We also decided to accept Steve's proposal below -- but focusing on his suggestions to:

  • compile a list of existing Moodle support materials that are available as free content.
  • In addition, if this would be interesting, I could map a draft curriculum outline for faculty training and support.

Could you liaise with Steve - in particular with the design of the questionnaire items related to the availability of free content materials for PD in Moodle.

Cheers

I am interested in the "Moodle in the Commonwealth" project.

  • I would use web searching and social networking to draft a list of relevant institutions using Moodle.
  • I would put together a short survey of institution that are (and, if desired, are not) using Moodle. I've done surveying for higher education assessment purposes in the past.
  • I would compile a list of existing Moodle support materials that are available as free content.
  • In addition, if this would be interesting, I could map a draft curriculum outline for faculty training and support.

I am best reached by email.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your interest in this bounty. Clearly we have two adequately qualified WikiEducators to assist with this bounty.

I'm also interested in the additional bullet you have specified referring to mapping a draft curriculum for faculty training and support in Moodle.

Rather than splitting this bounty, I'm thinking that we may run the mapping exercise in parallel with the Moodle in the Commonwealth Bounty.

It would be great if you and Sanjaya could work in parallel on these two objectives.

I'll start drafting TORs for you both to consider.

Hi Steve,

We've decided to accept a parallel bounty along the lines you have proposed. Thanks for your submission. We would like you to

  • Prepare a draft curriculum outline for professional development of new Moodle users - well rooted in the pedagogy of eLearning.
  • To liaise with Sanjaya in the design of relevant items in the questionnaire to help identify the availability of free content materials that can support this PD.
  • To map available resources to the proposed curriculum outline.

Thanks for your interest in our project.

Cheers

Wayne,

I don't know if you're aware of this list. I'm a great believer in going to the horse's mouth, which in this case is Martin = Mr.Moodle.

If you would like a quick overview of his present thinking, then you'll be happy to know it's not too dissimilar to your own. This piccie gives you the model that they're working to at the moment. They expect to deliver the hub sometime later this year, according to Martin.

You know, if we want to start pulling a few things together, it would be really useful if we started to get serious about a community hub of our own. By that I mean something like wikback, but which has combined wikicentric community forums. i.e WMF projects, wikieducator, citizendium and a few wikified others. regards, simonfj
