Going global with the NZ guidelines ....
Pleased to see that Otago Poly is part of the most recent NZ guidelines initiative.
I was involved with the steering group when this started and am very pleased to see that the guidelines have now adopted a free content license (CC-BY-SA).
I'd like WikiEd to facilitate going global with the project in the sense of involving other Commonwealth institutions in developing similar projects and case studies.
I'd like to explore creating a guidelines portal on WikiEducator where we migrate the guidelines to a portal page in WikiEd and link to projects like yours.
Keep up the excellent work.
Afterthought -- Why don't you include a link on the New_Zealand page and lets see whether we can build more community energy around this.
thanks Wayne sorry for the delay in replying. I am still getting the hang of communicating on the wiki. I like your suggestions re a guidelines portal. During our steering committee meetings a few of us have been pushing for migrating the elearning guidelines across to WikiEd. this is still under discussion and some of the resistance has been due to people's need for branding and the perception that custom-built websites done by companies that charge lots of money are better- they have been slow to understand that branding can still occur on WikiEd and about the importance of ongoing collaboration and sustainability for a project such as this - a couple of us have turned blue trying to get people to understand.
John Milne at massey is the project manager for the overall project and oversees the project with the steering committee. I have passed on your comment to him to present at the meeting tomorrow as I wont be able to attend.
