Knowledge, Learning, Community

Sept 20, 2002

For the better part of two weeks in August, 2002, I wrote a daily commentary for Net*Working 2002, an online conference hosted by the Australian Flexible Learning Framework for the National Vocational Education and Training System. These pages consist of the contents of that commentary.

To return to this menu, click Back to return to this page (to preserve the feel, I have not included any extra links or navigation in these pages). the newsletters contain many internal links. Some of these link to conference pages (for example, to discussions or paper downloads). Links to conference pages will start working in October, 2002 (sorry for the inconvenience).

Though it took me several hours a day to read and compile material, in the end these newsletters were written very quickly. It is worth commenting that I have not edited these newsletters. This means that spelling mistakes and other silly errors remain intact. Additionally, one of the newsletters (the last one from August 20) is cut off because of a forms problem. You will notice that as I adapted to the format I developed some conventions; as tempting as it was to return and employ the conventions in the earlier newsletters, I did not.
