A place for us to discuss a federated global learning network IT infrastructure. This discussion started on the OERu Google Group that can be found here: http://groups.google.com/group/oeru/browse_thread/thread/7b5cd6c8355f69e3. Stay tuned...


New Terms of reference for terena's tf-media. Trans European Research and Education Networks Association's task force on Applied Media in Teaching and Learning. [1]

Allied with this terena taskforce are three others.
One is REFED = Research and Education Federations. https://refeds.terena.org/index.php/REFEDs:About
Two is Eduroam = The first global service for members of participating institutions. http://www.eduroam.org/
Three is (if i can ever get them thinking like non Europeans ) tf-cpr = Communications & public relations. http://www.terena.org/activities/tf-cpr/
