Instructions for Day 1: Be bold, try an edit!

Dear Friends,

A warm welcome to our 50th free WikiEducator Learning4Content Online training workshop, running from April 27 – May 11, 2011.

We will be sending you the instructions day-by-day and twice:

1. Through the WikiEducator Moodle platform at WikiEducator Moodle Platform


2. Through a dedicated Google group email address, to your email directly, to which you can reply. You do not need to go on to the Moodle platform, as the training is done directly on WikiEducator.

This is why it is important that you bookmark the workshop home page, so it is easily accessible to you.
