(Hi Mike, thanks. I thought our email contained questions and suggestions that others may find useful...)
Regarding the blogging.. I think a tag or category would be fine, especially if you can generate a feed from it. That way people could simply subscribe to that feed instead of the main one.. I will subscribe to both :) Your main one for general interest, and your course feed for, well, the course :) as for where to draw the line, I think anything that is relevant to the course should be included in the course feed... I can handle it, so I'll leave it to your discretion.
As for communications.. from time to time we will be web conferencing. At the moment the two platforms pegged for that will be Elluminate and Second Life... maybe Skype as well. Any planned meetings of this nature are written in the schedule on the week they are to occur. Depending on the group preferences of course, but I'm thinking 10am NZ time (8am your time) will be the likely meeting time (as it is good for Australia, most of America as well as Western Europe). All meetings will be audio recorded of course, so if connectivity is an issue on your commute (I know that commute well) you'll be able to access the recordings. I had heard that the Blue Mountains train line is all WiFi now? I like to think I planted that seed if its true :)
Hope that covers it.. I think it would be good to have this on the wiki discussion page.. can you restart the thread there? Maybe a new thread called General questions?
Hi Leigh and Mike,
I'll also be using a blog I already have and maybe I'll be writing about this in English and Spanish, I think it would be a good idea to agree on a tag, so that we all use the same. I had a look at the categories used on the page, but they are too general. Any ideas?
