I thought this pic was a great illustration to represent the topic were are investigating this week - What is flexible learning? Yay, there are now five people with blogs up and running - Adain, Helen, John, Katy and Steven - links below. It will be good to see some of you giving each other encouragement and posting your ideas from the orientation exercise on your blogs this week. Also posting your initial thoughts about flexible learning from the chapter you are reading, and the short story about one of your students. Remember to check out the course schedule for this topic to see exactly what you need to do.

Setting yourself up on the group email
Remember a couple of people can only communicate via the group email so make sure you join - subscribe on the Participate page by adding your email address to the box - Subscribe to flexible learning practitioners email forum. I am going to start using only this group email for all notices from the end of this week. You can still email me at my tekotago email if you have any private questions or comments.
