My Profile

My name is Akshay Kumar and I have been working with an Open University in India. The role of technology in open and distance learning is quite important, specially with large number of students. I have actively developed distance learning course material, videos and participated in student counselling sessions for more than two decades.
I have started working with wiki since March 2009. I am finding it an easy to use tool for my students. I am sure Wiki will enable me to be in direct touch of my students and their counsellors. I am sure that by using Wiki, we will be able to bridge the distance among us.

My Reflection

I am enjoying the workshop so far. Hopefully more discussion follows.

Very nice to meet you here. WikiEducator is a very warm and comfortable community. () . If there is any way I can help you, please let me know (coloured backgrounds, margins, user pages in multiple languages). Come visit my user page. Also, just to remind you, I put up a new page on which you can practice collaborating, by using your editorial skills included in the tutorial.
