John Dalziel's insight:

I've posted a number of links to free and open education courses, Saylor joins that list.
The site offers nearly 250 free courses online.

Although aimed at learners, practitioners will find content that could be used in both "Flipped and Traditional Models" of course delivery.
For learners, in addition to taking classes, they can...
- participate in discussion forums (organized by topic), and
- track courses and print transcripts.

Create Online Forums For Free

For many Learning Providers, creating an online forum would be an excellent way to get stakeholders and/or prospects interested in you, your courses, etc., and interacting with one another.


Creating a web forum isn't a simple task but Ribbot, a free to use web service, lets users create online forums without having to code or design anything.


To get started create an account and name the forum; the forum name will be used in its direct URL which will be a subdomain of Ribbot.


People who then visit your forum will be able to..
     - view all the posts that have been made on the forum.
     - create new posts and comment on existing posts after they create their own account on Ribbot.
