A lot of informal learning can take place in many different formats - email newsletters, online discussions, as well in formal courses and workshops. Any and all can be effective online. - my notes from the phone meeting to discuss GWLN communication needs. I documented some of the technologies that I thought might be included in a communication "plan", lots of links to technologies that might someday be useful for GWLN I pulled this together after talking with Linda and Sema about doing something for Turkish women.

Community of practice - this might be a place to start with the current group that are in Santa Clara next week. These things need lots of members to be active, so adding all the previous graduates and resources might help make it active enough to be interesting.

use Ning network - discussions, pictures - Ning is free

example -

WikiEducator - wiki, web page hosting, community of educators - I'm on the advisory board - free page hosting

learning to use the wiki tools - self-study, free facilitated online workshops

  • Spanish - not much content, but if someone wanted to work in a Spanish

language environment, it is here

  • India - country project - many of these people are active in

WikiEducator and may be good contacts for GWLN

  • Africa - one of Linda's students is involved, so I included a page and some links. They use Ning for their primary web presence and networking.

Moodle - If you are interested in formal courses, there are technologies for that too.
