We value your opinion
This is a collaborative project. If you think that anything needs to be changed (e.g. the project aim doesn't capture your vision/needs), then talk about it on the main page discussion page.
On the main page there are two main categories for resources.
- The Library is a list of resources which are relatively unstructured.
- Learning Outcomes is a list of resources which are structured according to a set of learning outcomes. These learning outcomes are loosely based on learning outcomes which are commonly used in the New Zealand massage education industry. It is intended that this categorisation will be used as a starting point, and will not suit all users. If you think changes are needed, there is a thread in the discussion page where all users can discuss any issues.
