All change

Although the primary reason for the blog software change was because I *really* want comments, there's also a more fundamental shift in the function or purpose of this blog that I feel is reflected by the new system.

To date my role has been in creating e-Learning materials; reasearching and developing (with the aid of specialists) the course materials before structuring them in a format that doesn't require students to visit campus.

My new role, although I have no formal confirmation of this, will be as a Moodle pusher within the college; rolling out e-Learning within the college for the on site courses.

Honestly, I'm scared. Andrenalin-charged excited scared, but scared nontheless.

Over the last few months I've been trying to develop a support network of people who have either been there, are there, or have related experience that they are willing to share. And here's the thing the experiences I've had developing my PLN have already altered the way I learn, grow and think about many processes and my intention over the next few months is to be continously open to this learning process.

This blog will now cover
  1. as much of the experience of rolling out Moodle as I can
  2. as much of my own learning development as I have time for.
A few months ago I would have assumed item two was less valuable to anyone except myself. Now I think it's deeply important and worth sharing.

And if you're reading this, the chances are that you taught me that. Thanks. :)
