Hi there, Leigh!
My name is Diego Leal. I'm from Colombia (right now in Bogota, but moving in a couple of weeks back to Rio de Janeiro), and I first met you last year during an online workshop we had with Nancy White (organized by the Ministry of Education), in which you participated as a guest. I just knew about this course (I've been traveling the last few days so I was kinda disconnected) and I would like to be part of it. I'm sorry I'm a little late, but I think it makes sense to get involved because I already have most of the tasks of week one completed :D. I'm also glad to see a lot of familiar faces around, and I'm sure I'll get to learn a lot from all of you.
I'm quite interested in the idea of open/flexible courses (like CCO, which will start next month), so I think this will be a great opportunity to try and understand what's that about. I have to confess here's a chance that every now and then I might get into "lurker-mode", but I'll try and keep those moments as few as possible.
This is my contact info:
- E-mail: diego at diegoleal dot org
- Blog (English, I have another one in Spanish): http://www.diegoleal.org/social/blog/blogs/dotedu-dotco/
- RSS (Atom, in fact) feed
The remaining thing to do now is to listen to the Elluminate session. I already asked to join the GoogleGroups group.
I had a question, anyway: I suppose you are you collecting the different RSS fedds from the participants, right? Is there a chance for you to generate an OPML file, so it's easier for everyone else to add those feeds?
Congratulations on the course, and thanks for allowing me to join.
