Jump to: navigation, search


On December 7 and 8, 2006 Wayne Mackintosh and Eric Feinblatt were guests of Penn State World Campus and AESEDA . In addition to serving as general resources to the Penn State community, two open meetings were held and recordings were made. Out intent is to make recordings and materials available from those meetings as a general resource and to use WikiEducator as a way to grow those resources collaboratively.
