Le Marque Page
This French language e-learning magazine is based in Turkey and seeks to speak to learners on four continents. Described in educa.ch (also in French): "The Marque Page is a webzine having the objective of publicizing classroom work and to support the exchange of information and linkages between francophones worldwide. The site, particularily rich, is animated by teachers of schools in Istanbul with the aid of l'Institut français." Forgive the rough translation; I'm still new at this.

Collaborative Learning Environments Sourcebook
A resource that quotes me in the first line is sure to get my attention sooner or later, and not surprisingly such a work resonates with my thinking. From the website, "This is a sourcebook for academics and students who want to develop collaborative learning environments (or communities of practice) in which lecturers, students and others can work together to create new knowledge while learning new skills." Looking for author information I follow the main link and reach the The Critical Methods Collective and just know I'm in the right place. Also related: the author's Collaborative Learning blog, already listed in Edu_RSS, and so the circle is complete. By Martin Terre Blanche, et.al., October, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]

The Experience Designer: Learning, Networks and the Cybersphere
I found this relatively new blog by following a link to this item through my referrer system, then following the link on a comment on that page. It is based on the author's book of the same name. The focus of the blog is on the nature of learning, and the author questions whether what we in e-learning are designing accords with that conception. It's a good conversation to have, and the discussion is insightful and well informed. By Brian Alger, October, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]
