Kfasimpaur: that link seems to go to a commercial page about virus software or something.

There was a typo in the URL. Sorry about that. It's fixed now.

Hi Kfasimpaur,

Much of our work involves -ICTs4Development --- we have a keen interest in mobile learning. You're developing a great resource here. WikiEducator (WE) is keen to expand the number of PD workshop materials and the mobile learning workshop would be a valuable addition to the project.

I see that you're using a CC-BY-SA license so if you thinking of moving the materials or creating a duplicate copy on WE -- we'd be very happy to have you join our community:-D

You gain two immediate advantages with WE:

  • no adverts
  • Wiki to pdf technology to produce printed handouts directly from the Wiki for your workshops.

You should also have a chat with User:Ktucker who is doing some interesting stuff on the mobile learning front. I'm also very keen to encourage the collaborative development of content designed for delivery on mobile devices. Perhaps in the future we could secure donor funding for developing tailored exports from Mediawiki to formats suitable for mobile devices.

Handouts4Teachers is currently in the design and conceptualization phases -- not much content yet, but now is a good time to join and help in fine tuning the planning for this project.

Within the next couple of weeks, I'll be uploading a few example lessons which were developed by a colleague at Christs College in New Zealand - we've been waiting for the Wiki ==> pdf functionality to be implemented. We will be promoting the Handouts4Teachers initiative in a big way this year.

We would welcome any help and/or advice you can provide.

Chat to you soon.
