Notes from my Wikineighbours

  • Jambo. Great to see you in the tutorial, Elizabeth, and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials. --Phil Bartle 05:45, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
