Interesting concept .... I like that you can "moderate" other peoples changes (i.e., choose to accept or reject them). It would be interesting to see how the "ask an expert" for editing advise works too.

jaap den dulk's curator insight, April 1, 2013 3:36 AM

Very intuitive design. Promising stuff for collaborative writers.

John Purificati's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:50 AM

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.
