It seems that quite a few of you have had problems logging on to Moodle and participating in the Moodle discussion area and we are working on sorting out the problems for each of you. Please let us know if you have any problems.
We decided to go with Open source tools for this course; Moodle and OpenMeetings, and the people this morning in the OpenMeetings session also might have noticed that there were still a few glitches to iron out, but we are aiming to have all problems solved by Friday.
You will have noticed that this course is part of the research in the development of a Personal Learning Environment and we will tell you more about this development later on in the course. For now we were hoping that you would be willing to fill out a background survey that you can find here and that will give us some idea of who you are, where you live and about your motivation for taking the course. You can find a link to the research page for more information on the research. Thanks.
