Get the Book

Mark Pegrum's From Blogs to Bombs: http://www.newsouthbooks.com.au/isbn/9781921401343.htm
 
We're hoping for an affordable eBook version.  Otherwise we'll make some arrangement with Mark.
Mark will be joining us 13:00 GMT Jan 31, 2010 to discuss his book, in Elluminate, http://tinyurl.com/y3eh.
 
Teaser: Multilit Yahoo Group participants can get the intro to Mark's book here:

Let's start the session 

Please join our

 

 

Our  interaction will take place through YG email and Ning forums.  If you don't have Yahoo and Ning IDs,

get them : both are free and easy to obtain following the instructions at the respective sites. Please check our tutorials on the sidebar for more information on how to create your Yahoo and Ning IDs.

 

 

How will we communicate?

There are two main communication modes throughout this workshop: asynchronous and synchronous.

 

The asynchronous mode (not live or in real time)

  • Yahoo group (YG): This might be our initial means of communication to be in permanent contact with all members through a distribution list. You can edit your membership and choose the e-mail address that you would like group messages be sent to and if you want to receive a daily digest or individual messages.
  • Ning: This will likely be our communication tool once everyone is signed up and the course gets effectively under way.
  • Twitter

 

The synchronous mode (live, in-real-time sessions)

We will have live sessions, with guest speakers, which will take place at a fixed date, time and place. They are already announced and the information will be available in the Events Schedule page. Besides, you will be reminded by mail in advance.

 

IMPORTANT:

The time for the sessions will be given in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). There is a clock with GMT time in the Front Page or on the right of your window of this wiki for you to check the time where you are located.

 

 

Methodology

 
 
There are Weekly Activities to be completed and/or shared with the other participants.
If you have questions about the tasks, you are encouraged to post your queries to the YG, from your own e-mail, or through the POST function of the YahooGroup
 
If you fall behind during the session, don't worry, you can always post your completed tasks at any time.
