I've signed up for the OER discussions which are being sponsored by the Commonwealth of Learning (See http://oerworkshop.weebly.com and registration for the discussions at http://oerworkshop.weebly.com/--online-discussion-forums.html )
PLENK2010: Online sessions via Elluminate are scheduled for Wednesdays and Fridays at noon EDT. I have a difficult time making myself show up at an appointed time - but I have in mind to attempt attending. In the meantime... I read through some of the discussions for Week 1:
Zaid Aslagoff put up a link to his free learning tools list
It's a long list! I would think that instructors ought to make some suggestions about which tools to use.
One participant suggested that PLE tools should be accessible via mobile devices. Some participants have mentioned Symbaloo - yet another social bookmarking site..
(Ok, does everyone doing PLENK2010 want their discussion contributions discussed outside of the PLENK2010 environment? I'm assuming "yes" given that we're asked to tweet and post, etc.)
